An accessible, quality
Penn State education
Who We Are
Penn State has been a leader in distance education since 1892. Not comfortable with resting on the success of 125+ years of experience, our office leads the online vision and strategy for Penn State’s twenty-first century land-grant mission.
What We Do
Our purpose is to provide an accessible, quality Penn State education online to address the needs of learners pursuing their educational goals across Pennsylvania, throughout the nation, and around the world.
We are committed to providing the highest-quality, online learning environments that promote forward thinking and student success. Our strength in reaching and meeting learners where they are is supported by our depth of expertise with pedagogical methods, instructional design, and our attention to policy and practice.Dr. Renata Engel, Vice Provost for Online Education
