Archivist named to diversity commemoration committee

Penn State President Eric Barron has appointed University Archivist Jackie Esposito to serve on a 19-member University committee to recommend plans for “a  comprehensive commemorative that celebrates Penn State’s history of and aspiration to diversity and inclusion.”

The committee, which convenes starting in August and is chaired by Marcus Whitehurst, Penn State’s vice provost for Educational Equity, has been charged to consider broad ideas that will recognize the University’s longstanding efforts as well as its future plans.

An announcement regarding the committee’s membership and charge notes, “In 2016, INSIGHT into Diversity also recognized Penn State as one of the first Diversity Champions in Higher Education.  Only nine other universities in the nation have been given this distinction.”
