CoSA Expertise & Availability

Spring 2020 CoLab Student Affiliates gather for a day of professional development

CoLab Student Affiliates are available during our open hours to work with the PSU community (students, faculty and staff). Different CoSAs have different expertise and availability. Below, you’ll find information about each topic on which we offer support, who can assist with this topic, and what days/times someone is available.

In addition to CoSA availability, CoLab staff and faculty are available during our regular operating hours from 8:30-5 for help with these topics and more.
