Penn Theme

About Penn Theme

Each year, the Penn Provost’s office sponsors a series of events around a theme chosen by faculty, staff and students.  Past themes have included: Evolution, Arts & the City, Water, Games, and Sound.

2014-15 is the Year of Health.  During the year we will explore health, wellness, and welfare across many areas of our lives. What role does health play in defining our history and guiding our future? In our relationships and interactions with others? In technological development? In business? How does health differ throughout the world, both conceptually and physically? What are some of the ethical and legal questions health raises? Join us for events devoted to this fascinating topic. And let us know if you have ideas for events related to Health during the year!
