President Amy Gutmann in India

Amy Gutmann's Trip to India

As part of the Penn Compact, President Amy Gutmann has made it a priority to reach out to Penn’s global alumni. Above, in Mumbai, India, President Gutmann, with her husband, Michael Doyle (at left) are joined by Penn alumnus, Hital Meswani, ENG ’90, W ’90 (at right) and his wife, Bijal. President Gutmann spoke at an event on January 5 in India’s National Centre for Performing Arts which was attended by over 300 alumni, parents and friends as well as some early admits to the incoming class. Penn’s acapella group Masala performed there. This trip was the first time a Penn president has made an official visit to India where Penn has strong and historic ties. Penn receives the largest number of applications among the Ivies from India—there are currently almost 700 students and scholars from India studying here. Penn’s CASI is the only research institution in the U.S. dedicated to contemporary India; the department of South Asia Studies is the nation’s oldest (1948).
