President's Message

Students prove time and again the value of a Penn College education.

To see the value of a Penn College education, one needs to look no further than Penn College students.

Whether it be in sports, ROTC or beautifying our community, innovative students have taken their collegiate lessons and, in true Penn College spirit, applied them to hands-on challenges. The results are impressive: testing new manufacturing materials, besting collegiate competitors, brightening children’s smiles.

Students are the reason we are here. Penn College students are smart, capable and motivated. Throughout their educational process, they demonstrate the worth of our work. They reassure us that our mission, our vision and our values are in the right place.

It is an honor and a privilege for everyone who works at Penn College to play some small part in the development of these students as they go out into the workforce.

I’m sure you’ll agree, as you read this Annual Report, that 2015-16 was a year of challenges and opportunities, but most of all, it was a year of student success.
