Department ofGermanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures



Dear Friends,

Carrie JacksonWe are very proud of the many alums of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages who enriched our community during their time with us and are now helping to foster a better world through their work and other contributions to society.  We are fortunate that many of our alums continue to play a valuable role in the life of the department through their involvement in student mentorship, sharing of information about job opportunities, and financial contributions that help to establish scholarships to support student enrichment activities, including valuable study abroad opportunities for our majors and minors.

Please consider joining our growing community by reconnecting with us or taking your current participation to another level. Let us know about your activities since leaving Penn State by submitting your alumni profile. I also encourage you to consider participating in the Liberal Arts Alumni Mentor Program, joining our college’s Facebook and LinkedIn alumni groups, and volunteering to help students in other ways.

I invite you to explore the website and to get in touch with me ( if you have any questions or updates to share.

Best wishes,
Carrie Jackson
Head, Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures
