Any faculty, staff, student, or community member may nominate a Penn State undergraduate student from any campus for the Stand Up Award. This award honors students demonstrating courage, fortitude, and ethical leadership by taking a stand for a person, cause, or belief. Successful nominees will be honored at a ceremony in April 2015 when they will be presented with a $1,000 award.
In response to accessibility requirements and new design technology, the University Faculty Senate recently unveiled a contemporary website with a user-friendly interface. The site provides information on Senate committees, including agendas, minutes, and reports; student academic policies; curricular procedures; and course/program changes across the University system.
