Clarion University's 150 Anniversary
Clarion University has been shaping minds for 150 years. From our early days as a seminary to today's institution offering more than 100 programs, one thing is certain – Clarion University isn't going anywhere.
In the past 150 years, the world has changed and so has our school. We've adapted to new ideas and technologies, while staying true to our roots.
We are Courageous. Confident. Clarion. And we'd like to celebrate our remarkable past while looking to our bright future.
To commemorate the sesquicentennial, we're beginning a year-long celebration starting fall 2017. This is your starting point for everything Clarion 150.
The launch for Clarion's Sesquicentennial was held Sept. 11 in the Gemmell Multi-Purpose Room. President Karen Whitney, Ph.D., provided opening remarks, as did Clarion University Council of Trustees Chair J.D. Dunbar. Following the opening remarks, Whitney delivered her State of the University address. The All-Employee recognition ceremony was held after Whitney's address followed by an All-Employee 150th photo.
The sesquicentennial celebration will continue throughout the year.
