Based on the findings of a feasibility study, a tourism research center was created at Penn State University in the spring of 1987. The primary purpose of the center was to foster interdisciplinary tourism research at the university. Studies have been undertaken to determine the economic and social impact of tourism within the state and to establish benchmark data which will be used to evaluate the state's tourism promotion efforts. Initial problems include personnel and financial constraints.
