To help ease holiday travelers’ nerves and ward off criminal activity at empty homes, the Division of Public Safety is offering special property checks for Penn faculty, staff, and students over the Winter Break. The property checks are available to anyone living within the Penn patrol boundaries. DPS will begin performing checks on Friday, Dec. 19, and will continue as late as Sunday, Jan. 11.
In May, the School of Arts & Sciences approved a new interdisciplinary Native American and Indigenous Studies minor, linking 34 courses taught by 19 faculty members across 13 departments and four different schools. The courses offer cultural, political, epistemological, and methodological insights that can help students better understand cross-cultural and trans-national histories.
