Penn Perspective: June 25 & 26

Penn is a unique institution with a proud history and worldwide reputation for excellence. Although our mission of education, research and service is easily understood, the business of running such a large and diverse enterprise is not. It is a very complex process. This program will attempt to provide insight into these complexities and those attending the program will leave with a better understanding of how the University works. Participants will also develop a greater appreciation for the role they play in this process.

This two-day Learning and Education Program will include the opportunity for you to hear first-hand from Penn's leaders regarding critical aspects of the University's structure, mission and future direction. The program will be held Tuesday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 26, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in Bodek Lounge, Houston Hall. Continental breakfast and lunch are included. The registration fee is $50.
