The Center for Character, Conscience, and Public Purpose strives to inspire every Penn State student to live a life defined by a strong character, a thoughtful conscience, and an understanding of their responsibility for the public good. The Center offers programs and services designed to challenge students to reflect on questions of personal conscience and character and equip students with the understanding, motivation, and skills of responsible citizenship.

2020 Census
The Census happens every 10 years and is required through the U.S. Constitution. It's a count of every living person in the U.S.

College students should complete the Census where they live most of the year. Typically, this is their school address.
