FROM:     Eric J. Barron
TO:           Matthew Woessner

I am in receipt of the advisory/consultative report, Curricular and Co-Curricular Learning Pathways to Promote the Well-Being and Safety of First-Year Undergraduate Students, passed by the University Faculty Senate on April 25, 2017.

Penn State is committed to the well-being, safety, and financial literacy of students across the University.  Leadership by Student Affairs and the Office of Undergraduate Education will ensure that all first-year students receive this essential information in timely and engaging ways. I am supportive of these efforts and of the provision of resources needed to develop and assess effective learning pathways.
