New Coordinator of Multicultural Programs

Posted: January 25, 2013

Please welcome Derek James as our new Coordinator of Multicultural Programs. As a member of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Derek’s primary responsibility is the development, coordination, and implementation of programs and initiatives designed to recruit and provide supportive services for diverse students within the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Increasing the diversity of our student body will be an important goal.  He will also serve as Co-Advisor for the Penn State Chapter of Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences which is a national student organization.  With a graduate major in Agricultural and Extension Education, Mr. James is not new to the College of Agricultural Sciences.  He knows his way around Penn State, as well.  For the past five years, he held the position of Assistant Director of the Upward Bound Math & Science Program in the Office of Educational Equity.  His office will be in Room 101 Agricultural Administration.  Stop by and welcome him in his new position.
