More about the Forum

The Penn State Faculty/Staff Club began the Forum in 1996 to introduce members of the University community to some of the most notable leaders and policy makers in their respective professions.

Modeled after the National Press Club, the Penn State Forum includes lunch, followed by remarks from the distinguished speaker. After the presentation, a facilitator poses questions submitted by members of the audience to the speaker. Together, the speaker and audience have an opportunity to explore some of the most pertinent issues facing higher education and society today.

The Forum is co-sponsored by the Penn State Bookstore, the Offices of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Senior Vice President for Finance and Business.
