The Penn State Wilkes-Barre community is comprised of an engaged student body, dedicated faculty and staff, and a group of caring and supportive alumni and friends. Each gift to the campus supports our students and the campus mission to educate, inspire, and empower our community. 85% of Penn State Wilkes-Barre students qualify for need-based financial aid, and the average unmet annual need is $11,000 per student. About half of our students are the first generation in their families to attend college, and the average debt per graduating students is $32,000.
From today through June 30, 2022, all gifts advance A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence, our current fundraising campaign.
