Penn State Smeal has commissioned Ohio-based Compass Consulting Services to conduct an extensive audit for opportunities to improve, support, and maintain diversity within the college. The audit is an initiative of the Smeal Diversity Taskforce, which sponsors education, training, and activities to enhance the college’s culture and prepare community members to engage more effectively with a global workforce.

In late February and early March, Compass engaged with members of the Smeal community via surveys, interviews, and focus groups. The firm plans to complete its work and provide a college-wide report for distribution in the fall of 2022.
