The Student Success Center is seeking gifts of any size to support the Rob Pangborn Honorary Fund for the Student Success Center.

A gift to this fund, named in honor of the retired vice president and dean for Undergraduate Education, will provide the center with funding to be used for a range of priorities and needs. Gifts to this fund could be used to advance initiatives such as establishing a student-alumni mentoring program, launching a speaker series focused on various facets of student success, and expanding support and recognition of Penn State's first-generation student population.

Individuals who wish to make a contribution to the Rob Pangborn Honorary Fund for the Student Success Center can do so online.
