Highlights of Penn's Accomplishments under Judith Rodin:

  • Federally sponsored research has more than doubled to $570 million, placing Penn among the top five universities in federal  research. Total research has risen to nearly $700 million, from $280 million nearly a decade ago.
  • Since 1994, Penn faculty have won 284 top awards and honors, including  two Nobel prize winners (in the last three years), three Lasker  Award winners, two National Medals of Science; 28 Guggenheim fellows,  18 members elected to IOM, and 11 elected to National Academy of Science. Penn now ranks among the top 10 universities with  regard to faculty awards and honors.
  • Established new interdisciplinary, cross-University institutes and centers in genomics, nanotechnology, cancer research, national safety and security, and urbanism.
  • Annual fundraising has more than tripled, from $135 million in 1995 to a projected figure for this year of over $400 million.
  • Penn's endowment has more than tripled as well, up from $1.1 billion in 1993, to a projected $3.5 billion for for 2003.
  • Transformed the undergraduate experience, creating the College House System, and academic hubs such as Kelly Writers House; launched a new pilot curriculum; and overhauled undergraduate advising.
  • Numbers of undergraduate applicants to Penn has risen 37 percent, while the admissions yield is up to 63 percent, meaning Penn is more and more the first choice of admitted applicants. Only one in five applicants is selected, up from nearly half in 1993.
  • Created numerous groundbreaking, inter-disciplinary, multischool undergraduate and graduate and degree programs.
  • Penn's physical environment has been transformed. New buildings and renovations that serve the academic mission, including Huntsman Hall, Levine Hall, Addams Hall, BRBII, and Silverman Hall, among others, have been completed. Renovations or completion of facilities that enhance the student life experience include Pottruck Health and Fitness Center, Perelman Quad, and the College House renovations. A campus master plan was created to guide future campus development for the next decades.
  • Launched a broadbased neighborhood revitalization effort in partnership with the community, resulting in a decrease in crime in University City, cleaner streets, new retail venues, more families moving into the neighborhood and an increase in home renovations, increased minority and women owned business participation and a new pre k-8 neighborhood public school.
  • New facilities that serve both the University and the neighborhood include Sansom Common, the bookstore, hotel, dining and retail complex; Freshgrocer supermarket; a new six-screen cinema; and the new Penn Alexander neighborhood public school.
  •   Stabilized the Health System and created Penn Medicine to more fully integrate the Medical School and the Health System.
  • Created the Penn National Commission on Society, Culture and Community which sought to understand the problems of contemporary public discussion and behavior and to foster more engaged and thoughtful conversations about contemporary social issues. The work of the Commission was published this fall in a book co-edited by President Rodin.
