The spring semester saw the launch of Our Penn: Let the Conversations Begin, a dynamic multi-city event designed to strengthen the Penn alumni community’s ties to the University and to each other.
The event features a short film, a live conversation between President Amy Gutmann and Penn undergraduates, and opportunities for attendees to mingle both before and after the main program. The unscripted dialogue is meant to illustrate how Penn’s commitment to Inclusion, Innovation and Impact shapes the Penn experience for today’s undergraduates, and illuminate what is possible when our community unites under the mission of Penn Compact 2020.
Our Penn is designed to promote conversation among all members of the Penn community and advance our ambitious goals to engage and involve even more of our alumni in the life of the University.
The event launched on March 2, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, and continued in London (March 7). Upcoming cities include Washington, DC (April 18), Boston (April 26), and Chicago (June 1). Additional events will be planned for fall 2016 and spring 2017.
