ABOUT MARVIN G. WORTHY
“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
For more than 25 years, Marvin Worthy has been committed to minimizing the devastation caused by a lack of civility and a sense of belonging. As the President and CEO of Worthy Consulting & Training, Worthy has assisted colleges and universities like Penn State, University of Notre Dame, Michigan State University, North Carolina A&T, Carnegie Mellon University, North Park University, Chestnut Hill College, and organizations like Dentsply International, Inc., Franklin County Housing Authority, and Glatfelter Insurance Group in building inclusive educational and workplace communities and culturally competent students and staff. Interacting with thousands of participants per year, Worthy has made it his mission to inspire and motivate his audiences to include not exclude, to accept not reject, and to act not ignore.
Worthy served as the Associate Dean of Students, Director of the Office of Organizational Development and Multicultural Training, and Director of Multicultural Student affairs at Shippensburg University and Assistant Residence Life Area Coordinator for the University of Delaware.
In recognition of his many contributions to diversity and service to the community, Worthy is the recipient of the Shippensburg University Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March for Humanity Award and Outstanding Effort Award, the ACT 101 Distinguished Service Award, the University of Delaware Richard A. Wilson Outstanding Service Award, the Pennsylvania Black Conference on Higher Education Appreciation and Outstanding Service Award, and the YMCA Community Development Award.
To compliment his commitment to inclusive excellence and student development, Worthy holds a Master of Science in College Student Personnel, Master of Science in College Counseling, and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.
