Chancellor’s Welcome

Chancellor’s Welcome

Welcome to the Penn State York website. The faculty and staff of our campus have provided the information contained here to help you clearly understand what we already know – Penn State York is a great place to be!

One reason Penn State York is great is that it has the look and feel of a small campus, yet it also provides access to the resources, name recognition, and prestige that Penn State University represents. Penn State York offers an individualized educational experience in which each student has access to a wide array of opportunities and choices. More than 160 Penn State University majors can be started here, and the campus excels at aiding undecided students in choosing among all the options that are available. Ten baccalaureate degrees can be completed at Penn State York, and over 160 other majors can be completed at University Park or other Penn State campuses after two years in York.

As you will see on this website, Penn State York has much to offer to prospective students, parents, alumni, and community members. Everyone at Penn State York – faculty, staff, and students – contributes to a culture of intellectual curiosity, engagement, and inclusion. Faculty and staff challenge and inspire students to excel, and provide a supportive environment for that pursuit.

Thank you for your interest in Penn State York. This website will provide you with a great amount of useful information. However, nothing can substitute for the real thing – please consider scheduling a visit to campus at your convenience. We look forward to welcoming you in person to Penn State York!

Dr. David W. Chown, Chancellor of Penn State York
