A brief description of the institution’s LGBTQ-inclusive policies, programs and practices:

Penn State hosts the LGBTQA Student Resource Center, and offers a plethora of student groups, a gender and sexuality minor, internship programs, Ally House in residence life, and much, much more.

Penn State policies AD29, AD85 and AD91 address gender-based intolerance, harassment and misconduct.

In October 2016 Penn State kicked off an ongoing University-wide initiative, "All in at Penn State", that brings students, faculty and staff together to show their commitment to cultivating a diverse and inclusive environment, respectful of everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, abilities, background, veteran’s status, political beliefs, and all the ways we differ.
