Eberly Science Alumni Society

Connecting alumni to Eberly and
each other long after graduation

Hintz Family Alumni Center at the University Park campus.

The Eberly College of Science’s Alumni Society was established to promote better acquaintance and fellowship among alumni, faculty, students and friends and to promote the interests of science education and research. The Eberly Alumni Society is governed by a small group of alumni who are leaders in industry, academia, medicine, research and more. The Eberly Alumni Society and the Alumni Society Board enhance the quality of science education at Penn State and provide advice and support to administrators, faculty, students, and alumni.



Membership in Eberly’s Alumni Society is open to Science alumni who are regular annual, life, or associate members of the Penn State Alumni Association.


Board of Directors

At-Large Directors are elected by the Board of Directors or appointed, with board approval, by the Society’s President. Membership consists of one, three-year term with the option to continue for a second, three-year term. Members return to University Park twice a year for business meetings.

The Board is guided by the following vision and mission:

Vision: Create a vibrant and engaged community of current and future Eberly Science alumni working together to support the goals of the college and Penn State.

Mission: Strengthen the Eberly Science community by leveraging the diverse personal and professional experience of our Board and the Eberly Science alumni network.
