The Customer Service unit consists of two teams responsible for delivering responsive and effective assistance to customers. One team is dedicated to and fully funded by Penn State Extension; this group is responsible for the main extension customer support center and processes registrations, addresses inquiries, resolves issues, and fosters positive interactions to enhance overall customer satisfaction and loyalty. The other team is focused on the college’s spotted lanternfly mission and assists customers with questions, concerns, and spotted lanternfly reporting submissions.
