Penn State DuBois guests get impactful glimpse of main campus

A leadership contingent from Penn State DuBois sweepingly explored Penn College’s main campus on Tuesday, stopping by … walking by … and being greatly impressed by the variety of academic areas and services that give students a full collegiate experience and develop their workforce readiness. Making the visit from the commonwealth campus, about 110 miles west of Williamsport, were: Jungwoo Ryoo, chancellor and chief academic officer; Alex Gasbarre, chief executive officer of Gasbarre Products Inc., a DuBois-based supplier to the powder metallurgy, particulate materials and thermal processing industries; John P. Brennan, director of continuing and community education; and Bradley W. Lashinsky, program director, North Central PA LaunchBox at the DuBois campus.

“Anytime we can learn from one another, and find mutually beneficial opportunities for our students and industry, is a good day,” said President Michael J. Reed, who met Ryoo several weeks ago and bolstered that connection during Tuesday’s visit. “There is much to discuss about our common goals – and ways in which to achieve them – and we welcome the ongoing collaboration.”

Led by Loni N. Kline, vice president for college relations/chief philanthropy officer, and Anthony J. Pace, dean of academic operations – and joined by Reed and Patrick Marty, chief of staff – the group toured or made note of The Madigan Library, Center for Career Design, plastics, dental hygiene, the Field House and UPMC Field, collision repair and automotive restoration, welding, machining, the mall, Klump Academic Center, The Dr. Welch Workshop: A Makerspace at Penn College, human services & restorative justice, the Children’s Learning Center, brewing & fermentation, and a patisserie sale before lunch at Le Jeune Chef Restaurant.
