On every anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the IUP community takes time to reflect on those events that changed our world forever.

It’s an opportunity to mourn those we lost, to remember the efforts of those who helped us recover, and to consider how we all were affected—and continue to be—by that tragic day. 

Please join our live stream event on September 11, 2020, as we mark the 19th anniversary of the life-changing events of September 11, 2001.  

Join Sierra DeMarsh, a health and wellness promotion peer educator, as she makes quick, healthy, and delicious dinner meals. Join her on Instagram: @IUPAWARE & @IUPRANGER1
