About this Event

State of “Us”, State of State’s inaugural Fall conference will bring together three student and two faculty speakers to discuss issues ranging from free speech to restorative justice. The event will take place on Thursday November 21st from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM in Flex Theater in the HUB, with doors opening at 5:30 PM. Food will be provided by Wegmans.

The conference theme, State of “Us”, captures the throughline between all of the speaker’s different topics: a personal narrative of why they are committed to the Penn State community. The presenters include:

- Daniel Zahn (UPUA Judicial Board): Free Speech at Penn State: Practices and Policies

- Siena Baker (President of Schreyer for Women): The Role of Womens Organizations

- Wil Dunn (Executive Director for the Penn State 2020 Class Gift): Why Give? Starting your Legacy

- Dr. Deanna Behring (State College Borough Council Member and Assistant Dean in the College of Agricultural Sciences): College Avenue is a Two-Way Street

- Dr. Effrain Marimon (Director of the Restorative Justice Initiative): Restorative Justice and Penn State

State of State is an organization committed to facilitating a dialogue within the university community about important Penn State-related issues. This dialogue culminates in an annual conference in the Spring which brings together students, faculty, alumni, and community members to speak about a number of Penn State and State College-related issues ranging from student life to mental health. Our goal is to bring together passionate change-makers who want to make our community stronger and more successful.
