At Penn State Worthington Scranton, we have an active IST advisory board to assist in curricular development and assessment as well as further the partnership between Penn State and the world of Information Sciences and Technology. The IST advisory board is a source of business and industry expertise to assure that the IST program’s teaching, research, and outreach are in tune with current and future trends in information, sciences and technology. The advisory board looks for ways to enhance the educational experience of IST students through campus events, learning opportunities based on real-world problems, internships, and the development of career opportunities.
