The Readiness Institute at Penn State believes community and future readiness is achieved when learners — regardless of their zip code, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, and ability level — are able to develop the skills, attitudes, and values needed to design and lead in matters personal, professional, and public.

Our Vision

Every learner has the skills, attitudes, and values necessary to design and lead a purposeful life.
