Brown named as CAS Marshal for May 2021 Commencement


The Department is honored to be represented by Erin Brown, who will serve as the Communication Arts & Sciences student marshal in the May 2021 commencement ceremonies. Ms. Brown, a double major in CAS and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, has an impressive record in her years at Penn State. In addition to her accomplishments in the classroom, Ms. Brown has also worked to direct attention to the problem of sexual violence on campus and to fight for institutional change to prevent violence and support survivors. In recognition of her contributions to the Penn State community, Ms. Brown received both the CAS Community Leadership Award and Stand Up Award, conferred by the Rock Ethics Institute, in 2020. We are delighted by her selection as our student marshal, as a capstone to her years as a Penn State undergraduate. We also congratulate Professor Ekaterina Haskins, who has been asked by Ms. Brown to join her as the CAS faculty marshal.

Congratulations, Erin and Katya!
