Events and News

Students and educators are invited to SEN-sponsored events throughout the year. Each fall we highlight students’ engagement experiences with the Student Engagement Expo. In the spring, we convene Penn State educators from across the Commonwealth for the SEN Summit. We also host workshops where students, faculty, and staff can learn more about SEN programs and how to apply. Check this page often for more information about these events, as well as the latest SEN news.
