Research and Outreach

Teaching, research, and outreach form the mission of Penn State Behrend. We're not only a destination for excellence in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education. We're also the region's research institution. And we're the local leader in K-12 outreach programs and services.

We maintain an active research agenda, with faculty and staff engaged in more than $6 million in projects annually. Undergraduate research is highly encouraged and supported with nearly $350,000 in grants awarded annually to students. On the outreach front, we operate more than two dozen centers, programs, and initiatives aimed at meeting business and community needs.

Businesses looking to expand are looking to Knowledge Park--an environment that brings forward-thinking companies together with faculty, staff, and students at Penn State for business and technology advancement. The park is home to 20 companies employing more than 500 people, and there's room and the resources for even more.
