Recruitment & Training

Penn State offers many diversity recruiting and training programs through Finance and Business, Office of Human Resources, and other units across the University. Below is a list of links to several programs that promote a diverse setting in all aspects of the University.

Finance and Business – Diversity

F&B has created a dedicated Diversity Key Initiative Team, as well as numerous programs, initiatives, and policies.


Searches and Recruitment

Hiring managers and search committee chairs must make sure all search committee members have viewed The Affirmative Action Office's Ensuring Equitable Searches for Staff Positions within the last year. This is available and searchable via the Learning Resource Network. The Affirmative Action Office Searches and Recruitment page provides additional tools to search nformation forms, applicant pools, search committee presentations, and more. There are also links to recruitment resources and diversity workforce guidelines.


Diversity Education Services

Diversity Education Services is a support system within the Affirmative Action Office that promotes the development of multicultural understanding and serves as a forum for staff and supervisors to discuss conflict. It also provides assistance to managers, supervisors, and faculty on managing diversity issues.


Penn State Library – Diversity Media Materials

The University Libraries offer many videos (in VHS and DVD formats) regarding hundreds of diversity issues and topics which can be located through LionSearch. The videos are a great tool for diversity forums, discussions, courses, and personal interest.
