Admininistrative Professionals Day | Correction |
HR: Open Enrollment


Administrative Professionals Day: Wednesday, April 23

Join Human Resources on Administrative Professionals Day for a live, two-hour satellite event designed specifically for administrative professionals at Penn. The live satellite broadcast will be held Wednesday, April 23 from 1-3 p.m. in Houston Hall, Hall of Flags, and features best-selling author Bob Nelson as he speaks about "Future Skills, What You Need to Succeed in 2003 and Beyond".

Mr. Nelson will teach strategies for fulfilling what he calls the "ultimate expectation" at every workplace, including how to take more initiative and get rewarded for it. Other presenters will be on hand to talk about the state of the administrative professional field, and to help you learn how to partner with your boss and influence others even without formal authority.

Please note that this event is open for all Penn staff, not just administrative professionals. The cost for the program is $15, which includes lunch. A copy of Bob Nelson's book, Please Don't Just Do What I Tell You, Do What Needs to Be Done will be raffled at the end of the program.

For more information, visit the Human Resources web site at, or call (215) 898-3400.

In last week's issue, the announcement of the Weiler Fellow Sean Keilen should have read: "Sean Keilen, Assistant Professor of English, studies Renaissance poetics, rhetoric, literary theory, antiquarian scholarship, and the history of the book. His current project, Vulgar Eloquence and the Origins of English Literature, weighs the contribution that classical poetry made to the invention of a vernacular literary culture during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Professor Keilen is also co-editing, with Leonard Barkan (Princeton University), a collection of essays called Terms of Art, which examines the transformation of Renaissance Studies at the end of the twentieth century." --Ed.
