About The Impact Award

The Impact Award honors those individuals who have made invaluable contributions to the building and establishment of Harrisburg University, and all of those who have supported Harrisburg University though our history and progress, and directly support our mission.

This is the highest-level award given and is a symbol of the individual’s dedication to Harrisburg University.

Harrisburg University will honor another longtime supporter with its 2024 Impact Award during the University’s annual Gala, set for April 27, 2024 at the Hilton Harrisburg.
