On May 25, Gutmann hosted Penn’s first all-alumni gathering in Taipei, attended by more than 200 guests. Penn has formal relationships with seven institutions of higher learning in Taiwan, with 1,104 alumni there, and 115 students from the island nation were enrolled at Penn last year.

“Penn and Taiwan have a long history of friendship and intellectual exchange,” said Gutmann at the event. “We look forward to expanding the scope of these mutually beneficial relationships in the years to come.”

This event was part of Penn's visit to East Asia, formalizing two academic partnerships, hosting alumni gatherings in Korea and Taiwan, and announcing alumni gifts to Penn’s Korean Studies Program. View the Engaging Globally story describing this visit.
