Penn State is commissioning a permanent outdoor piece that provokes thought, encourages dialogue, and demonstrates artistic achievement as a means of advancing the University's "All In" engagement strategy.
“All In” is an ongoing commitment to spotlight the importance of diversity at Penn State, demonstrate the University’s commitment to inclusivity and inspire all members of the community to take an active role in promoting respect and embracing diversity.
Penn State has a strong, storied history of diversity, inclusion, breaking barriers, pushing boundaries and standing together. “All In at Penn State: A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion” is a call for every member of our University community to build on those efforts by playing an active role in creating a climate of acceptance and inclusion. It is a call for students, faculty and staff to help Penn State continually evolve. By definition, diversity is a complex topic taking many forms including but not limited to race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, gender identity/expression, age, sexual orientation, size/weight, disability, veteran status, or religious preference.
This will be a major public piece on campus with a sizable budget. Deadline for proposals is February 22.
