Community Impact

Beyond our many academic programs, Penn State York is made up of students, faculty, and staff who are making a positive impact on our community, region, and the world through service, awareness, and research.

Penn State York is also a hub for the arts and entertainment, with our Pullo Family Performing Arts Center and cultural programming series featuring many events open to the public.
