The Penn Perspective
April 22, 2008, Volume 54, No. 30

Here at Penn, each of us sees a small slice of the University from our own unique vantage point—our personal perspective. But getting a sense of the entire “University of Pennsylvania” from what we see on a day-to-day basis is nearly impossible! It’s like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle with most of the pieces missing.

The Penn Perspective, a program that has been offered annually for the past twenty years, can give you the rest of those pieces, and help you put them together. Attendees will hear directly from the University’s academic and administrative leadership about what it takes to keep a large and complex institution functioning at such a high level for so long. Sign up to gain a greater appreciation for the role you play at Penn, to have a chance to meet and interact with other members of Penn’s vast community, and to get answers to the following questions:

• What does a Dean do?

• How does the admissions process work?

• What is life like for Penn students?

• How does the University maintain a sense of its history and tradition?

• How does Penn raise money?

• And much, much more.

The Penn Perspective is a two-day seminar, and will take place from 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. on June 10-11 in Houston Hall’s Bodek Lounge. To attend the program, please pre-register online at www.hr.upenn.edu (click on “Course Catalog” at the top of the page, and select “Penn Professional Development Seminars” from the “Browse by Category” menu), or contact Human Resources at (215) 898-3400. Lunch is provided both days, and there is a registration fee of $75 (to be paid by your department).
