Penn State University is a multi-campus public land-grant university that improves the lives of the people of Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world. Our instructional mission includes undergraduate, graduate, and continuing and distance education informed by scholarship and research. Our research, scholarship, and creative activities promote human and economic development through the expansion of knowledge and its applications in the natural and applied sciences, social sciences, arts, humanities, and the professions. Penn State Mont Alto is one of more than 20 Penn State campuses state-wide. It is a student-centered campus of approximately 1000 students; about 25% are adult learners. The campus is located in south central Pennsylvania in a rural setting adjacent to the Michaux State Forest. The coursework for the first two years of more than 160 Penn State baccalaureate majors is offered, as well as nine baccalaureate degrees and seven associate degrees. Students and faculty at Penn State Mont Alto have all of the resources of a major research university at their disposal, but in a small college atmosphere. Class sizes are small, and the student/faculty ratio is low, so students can receive much individual attention. Our faculty members are committed to providing a high-quality educational experience to their students and are actively engaged in research. Our students receive a world-class education delivered in a small campus setting and have opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects supervised by faculty members. For more information about the campus, visit http://montalto.psu.edu. Inquiries about the position should be addressed to Dr. Michael A. Doncheski, Director of Academic Affairs, Penn State Mont Alto.
