Penn Association of Senior and Emeritus Faculty
The mission of PASEF is to initiate, conduct and coordinate activities that encourage retired faculty members to continue to be active, contributing participants in the intellectual and social life of the University and to maintain connections among themselves and with their colleagues who are not retired. Such activities include organizing lectures, discussion groups, and social functions that provide fellowship and interaction among members and with the scholarly community on campus; familiarizing members, especially those planning retirement, with issues relating to retirement benefits and retired life; and promoting opportunities for members to render service to the University and its surrounding community.

David Hollenberg: Penn Transformed: The Last Ten Years, and What's to Come
Thursday October 6, 2016 at 3:30 PM
Class of ’49 Auditorium, 2nd Floor Houston Hall
David Hollenberg has served as University Architect at the University of Pennsylvania since June 2006. In this role he is responsible for oversight of the design of the physical development and preservation of the campus. David has led an array of projects that reconcile the desire for architectural preservation and the drive for progressive design, ensuring that the campus continues to be distinctly “Penn.” Previously, David oversaw all historic structures in the National Park Service’s thirteen-state Northeast Region, including the implementation of the Independence National Historical Park General Management Plan. For the past 28 years, he has taught in Penn’s Graduate Program in Historic Preservation.
Hollenberg’s talk will be followed by the Annual Reception for members of Penn's Twenty-Five Year Club.
