Penn Perspective: June 9-11

Enrollment is now open for the 16th annual Penn Perspective, the University's summer institute for administrators and for faculty serving as departmental chairs. The institute is offered primarily to provide participants with a broad understanding of the University's structure and mission, and the challenges facing Penn today.

The three-day program consists of lectures and presentations by many of Penn's senior officers and academic administrators, including the President, Provost, and Executive Vice President. Topics include Penn's academic foundation, management and fiscal practices, research, student life, human resources, computing, development and alumni relations, as well as current University issues. Built into the agenda is time for questions, discussion, and opportunities to interact with colleagues.

According to the program's sponsors, past participants cite "the acquisition of a wealth of information, the opportunity to hear directly from and interact with key Penn leaders, and the development of lasting, collegial relationships" among the benefits of attending Penn Perspective.
