Penn State Launches New Diversity Program With Multimedia Celebration

Penn State held the official kick-off event for its new diversity and inclusion initiative, “All In at Penn State,” in front of Old Main. The presentation included colorful video projections splashed across the building’s facade and even a special Snapchat filter for attendees.

The university hopes the event will spark a renewed focus on welcoming underrepresented groups and voices. Penn State president Eric Barron spoke about what the “All In” program means.

He said, "Tonight, we publicly acknowledge that it’s all a part of the Penn State identity. We are a rainbow. We are black lives matter. We are every beautiful shade of humanity.”

The multimedia video projected onto Old Main will replay Friday and Saturday nights from 7 to 11.
