I invite you to participate in an exciting program we are sponsoring as part of New Student Orientation (NSO). For the second time, the Provost's Office will be sponsoring a series of Proseminars for our entering students, designed to introduce them to the variety and liveliness of the Penn community. I hope you will agree to be a discussion leader for one of these NSO Proseminars. Like a SCUE preceptorial, an NSO Proseminar may be on any topic you choose: your latest research project, a hobby you enjoy, perhaps some current event in the news you are following with interest. The choice is yours; I would be delighted for students to have a wide variety of topics to select from when they sign up for these Proseminars.
Each Proseminar will meet for only one session, lasting anywhere from one to two hours, depending upon your preference. We will find a classroom or other location here on campus for you to hold your proseminar, and we will of course provide any audio-visual or other equipment you may need. We would like to schedule these on the afternoon of Tuesday September 4.
If you are interested in conducting an NSO Proseminar, please fill out the form below and return it to Anita Gelburd in the Provost's Office. You may either print it out and send it in hard copy to 120 College Hall, or simply click the reply button and include all of the requested information in your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please respond by May 21. I very much hope you will join me in this very worthwhile program.
