Phone Directory

Thank you to all faculty and staff who updated their information online for the printed 2007-2008 Faculty and Staff Telephone Directory. By mid-November, the new printed directory will be distributed to those departments that submitted orders. Departments that have not submitted their directory orders or that want to order additional directories should e-mail fsdirectory@pobox.upenn.edu.

About the Cover: Designed by Penn Publication Services
Calling global climate change the defining issue of the 21st century, this past February, Penn’s President Amy Gutmann signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment. This year’s directory recognizes Penn’s commitment to lowering its carbon footprint by featuring some of the ways that sustainability is already being defined on our campus.

Feature photograph: This year, the University celebrates the tenth anniversary of the restoration of Logan Hall. Built in 1874 by Thomas Webb Richards, Penn’s first professor of architecture, it is the second oldest building on campus. The renovation was completed long before adaptive reuse of buildings became an important part of the sustainability movement. It serves as a reminder that meeting the definition of sustainability requires not only looking at present and future needs, but also drawing upon the lessons and resources of the past.

Designed and Produced in an Eco-friendly Way
True to the cover theme, this year’s directory was printed with “sustainability” in mind. The result is an exciting new look—aesthetically pleasing and full of information as always—while meeting Penn’s definition of sustainability. This year’s directory was printed with:

• 100% overall recycled content, cover-to-cover

• Several 100% post consumer waste paper stock options

• Biodegradable soy-based ink

Green Activities Across the Campus
From green roofs to wind power; biodiesel to sustainable agriculture, the directory’s Green Pages 34 and 35 provide details on the many ways the Penn community is working toward a greener future. (Click here for details.)

New this YearUniversity Wide Recycling Effort
As part of Penn’s focus on sustainability, everyone in the Penn community is being urged to recycle their old directories. Facilities and Real Estate Services (FRES) will place “Toters,” (90 gallon cans on wheels) marked “For Directory Recycling Only” at locations within specific buildings. We strongly urge you to deposit your old directories in the Toters which FRES will pick up. Contact your Directory Liaison for these locations. A listing of Directory Liaisons is available at www.upenn.edu/phonedirectory.

Keeping Your Directory Information Current
Revising your directory listing online allows the University community immediate access to your current information and ensures accuracy for the next printed directory. To view/update your record: Go to www.upenn.edu/directories or visit www.upenn.edu/u@penn and select “My directory information” under the Personal Resources, Health & Welfare section.
