President Amy Gutmann and Provost Vincent Price have formed a new Task Force on Student Psychological Health and Welfare. The Task Force will examine the challenges confronting students that can affect their psychological health and wellbeing; review and assess the efficacy of Penn resources for helping students manage psychological problems, stress, or situational crises; and make recommendations related to programs, policies, and practices designed to improve the quality and safety of student life.
Wendell E. Pritchett, chancellor of Rutgers University-Camden and a former University of Pennsylvania Law School professor, will return to the Penn faculty as a Presidential Term Professor.
President Amy Gutmann says, “The completion of the renovated ARCH building marks a new focal point for cultural life on campus.”

President Amy Gutmann, chair of the federal bioethics commission, says “there’s a wide variety of reactions of people to incidental findings. Some people want to know them. Other people don’t.”
