Penn State Global Brigades began in 2007 with the establishment of the university's chapter of Global Medical Brigades. Since then, additional chapters have emerged, creating a network of 7 total chapters, representing all 10 disciplines of Global Brigades. 2 committees were created in order to organize service initiatives in our local State College community. The 7 chapters and 2 committees are also supported by a GB Campus Council that coordinates joint activities and events. Having one of the largest university GB networks in the world, Penn State serves to pave the way as a leader in student empowerment and involvement in Global Brigades programs. Powered by hundreds of inspired young students, Penn State Global Brigades participates in service trips abroad, local volunteer projects within the State College community, and a variety of other activities around campus.
