2011 Penn State ‘Road Scholars’ Tour


Penn State President Graham B. Spanier joined new and recently tenured faculty members from the university in a visit to Pennsylvania College of Technology on Monday, May 9, the first leg of a three-day Road Scholars bus tour. An outreach tradition, now in its 16th year, the tour takes participants to Penn State campuses, Pennsylvania businesses and historical places to learn more about the commonwealth and the statewide impact of the university and its affiliates. The local visit included lunch and a stop at a Marcellus Shale facility, before the tour moved west to the Allegheny Forest and Penn State Behrend. Tuesday’s itinerary comprised a variety of locations in the Erie area, while, on Wednesday, the group planned excursions to Titusville and DuBois before returning to University Park.
