Penn State Road Scholars Tour to Make Stops in DuBois
DuBois – The Penn State Road Scholars Tour is scheduled to visit DuBois, making stops at Penn State DuBois and GKN Sinter Metals on Wednesday, May 11.
This will mark the 16th Annual Road Scholars Outreach Spring Tour. Any new or recently tenured Penn State faculty member is invited to join the three day bus tour, hosted by Penn State President Graham Spanier, who joins faculty members on the tour. The tour travels to Penn State campuses, businesses, and historical sites throughout Pennsylvania. This year, the itinerary concentrates on the northwest region of the state. The intention is to provide participating faculty members with opportunities to learn more about the university, the state of Pennsylvania, and the significant impact Penn State has on the commonwealth.
In DuBois, faculty members will tour Penn State DuBois and learn more about the campus' strong connections and involvement in the community. Two programs unique to the campus, Wildlife Technology, and General Engineering with Applied Materials Track will be highlighted. A presentation will also be made on the Earth and Mineral Science program. Scholars will then take a tour of GKN's DuBois facility. GKN and Penn State DuBois have a long relationship, working together to train employees and prospective employees for real world careers in industries such as Powder Metal.
The entire Road Scholar Tour is scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, May 9-11.
