Campaign for Community - in Partnership with the Faculty Senate
The Campaign for Community aims to strengthen our Penn community by finding ways to discuss and understand key issues that may appear to be difficult or intractable. Campaign events will encourage us to come together and collectively address questions such as: Who are we? Who do we want to be? What do we share? How do we best interact with one another and talk about our differences? Visit the Campaign for Community website to learn about opportunities to get involved. Fall 2016 grants have an application deadline of November 15, 2016.
