“You Are Welcome Here” Banner Unveiling Ceremony

State College, PA – The Borough of State College and University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) is hosting a banner unveiling ceremony on Monday, April 2, at 4:30 p.m. for the “You are welcome Here” banners. The ceremony will be held in the State College Municipal Building lobby and will feature speakers from Penn State University (PSU) and the Borough.

The “You Are Welcome Here” banners that are currently displayed throughout downtown State College are a joint effort between the Borough and UPUA to further highlight the commitment to equity and inclusion in State College. These banners showcase the diversity of student residents in State College. Inspired by a similar initiative in eastern Michigan, UPUA developed the banners to help reach its goal of promoting global equality in
the community.

Help us welcome the “You Are Welcome” banners to State College!
