HERS: Dr. Gelburd and Ms. Saxon

This year Penn will send to the Summer Institute for Higher Education Dr. Anita Gelburd, the director of undergraduate academic affairs and of the Evening School Program at Wharton; and Berenice Saxon, assistant director of the Office of Research Administration. They will join women from throughout the country attending the month-long program that starts June 28 on the Bryn Mawr campus. This is the 23rd year of Penn's participation in the program co-sponosred by Bryn Mawr College and Higher Education Resources (HERS)Mid-Atlantic.

Faculty-Staff Appreciation Turnout

The June 2 Party on the Green for faculty and staff apparently drew a crowd of about 3820 (of 4000 box lunches, only 180 were left over, according to Bill Canney,director of dining services who catered the event). The next day's Health Fair drew nearly 500 for a combination of physical exams and information from health care providers. Data are still being tabulated on the Run/Walk and tours to campus museums, said Marilyn Kraut, Human Resources' coordinator of Quality of Worklife.
