Penn State Berks College

Penn State Berks College

From its beginnings as Wyomissing Polytechnic Institute (WPI) to becoming part of the Penn State system in 1958, the Berks campus has experienced many changes. WPI occupied the original Sacred Heart Church building on Hill Road, where the McDonald's Restaurant now stands, from 1930 to 1958 when its facilities were offered to Penn State to establish Penn State Wyomissing Center, now Penn State Berks campus. It moved to its present Spring Township location in 1972. With the addition of the residence halls in 1990, Berks became a residential and commuter campus.

 

Enrollment

 

Student enrollment at Berks campus has increased steadily since 1972, when approximately 500 students attended. Today, there are 2,824 students enrolled.

 

Our Campus

 

 

Berks campus includes 15 buildings on 258 acres of land, and there are 109 full-time and 94 adjunct faculty members. Residence halls provide housing for 804 students. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2008. Several unique projects documented our history at this time.

 

Diversity

 

"The first Penn State Principle, "I will respect the dignity of all individuals within the Penn State community," reminds all Penn Staters that we are an academic community that values and celebrates diversity in all its aspects. At Penn State Berks, we believe that diversity and community are mutually dependent. A strong, healthy community that ensures respect for difference and individual uniqueness enhances diversity and the quality of campus life."

-- Dr. R. Keith Hillkirk, Chancellor of Penn State Berks
