Please note that Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship WILL NOT be formally endorsing candidates in 2017, as we have in past years. The choice to select the three most qualified candidates is yours.

Instead, as a public service, we hosted a Town Hall event featuring all participants in order to add value to Penn State’s election process and to help you learn more about the qualifications of those candidates interested in representing us on the Board of Trustees. In the spirit of truth and transparency, it was refreshing to have an open dialogue about the challenges and opportunities that face Penn State, and how we, as engaged alumni, can contribute to the governance of one of the finest universities in the country.


The election opens on Monday, April 10th and continues through May 4th.


If you have voted before – or have received correspondence from Penn State via email in the past – you should receive a ballot in your email. If you need to request a ballot, or you have specific questions, please call VOTE-NET at 866-307-0041.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship.
