Development and Alumni Relations

The University Libraries Office of Development and Alumni Relations serves the Penn State community, which includes 37 Libraries on 24 campuses, 33,000 faculty and staff, 100,000 students, and the Penn State World Campus. By engaging alumni and friends to partner with the University Libraries, the development team strives to support all students on their path to academic excellence by providing innovative educational resources. The value of the Libraries is enormous as they truly are the heart of the University. We believe that any great educational institution must have a great library.
