To support a growing workforce, Penn State will expand its academic reach to South Philadelphia at its facilities at The Navy Yard. James Nemes, chancellor and chief academic officer of Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies in Malvern, will oversee the expansion of academic programming. A 1,200-acre campus-like community, The Navy Yard is home to over 13,000 employees and 150 companies, including NAVSEA, GlaxoSmithKline, Tasty Baking Company, Ben Franklin Technology Partners, and Urban Outfitters Inc.

According to Nemes, the plan is to expand academic offerings and research opportunities to engage local organizations and educate their employees. With free parking and close proximity to I-95, I-76, and I-476 roadways, Penn State’s location is convenient for adults living and working in Philadelphia, South New Jersey and Delaware.
