Penn State task groups are continuing to prepare for a coordinated phased return to on-campus working, learning and living for students and employees across each of the University’s campuses. From social distancing procedures, adjustments to on-campus operations and campus life, mask and hygiene practices to testing and tracing, isolation and treatment procedures, the groups are working through a variety of needs to support the health and well-being of community members and provide an excellent education for Penn State students.
After nearly 18 months of planning, several production hurdles and a worldwide pandemic that shut down international travel, not to mention all of Italy, architect and 2007 Penn State alumna Gillean Denny and a group of students, faculty and research assistants in the Stuckeman School are celebrating the virtual unveiling of a “Living Chapel” they designed to promote environmental consciousness as part of Global Catholic Climate Movement activities in Rome from May 16-24 and United Nations World Environment Day on June 5.
In response to the current pandemic, faculty members in the Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Penn State have rapidly shifted their attention to aid in developing various scalable solutions for COVID-19.
