U Belong at PSU

Diversity is something you see, but inclusion is something you feel. That's our philosophy. Bringing people together from around the world isn't enough— they need to feel included. At home.

We get that.

So we put together a place (a website actually) for students, faculty and staff to tell their stories and to read those of others. And a cool thing is happening. See, when you add them all up, when you see them all together, they start to tell our story. The story of inclusion.

"Anyone can belong at PSU, no matter their background," says Jilma Meneses, PSU's chief diversity officer.

Valesca Walesko, who is from Brazil, came to PSU uncertain whether she would feel welcome. Now she feels like she belongs: "Everybody can fit in here."
