Penn Theme

About Penn Theme

Each year, the Penn 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.'

The 2014-2015 theme is Year of Health, and provides an opportunity for us to 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?  Read more about Penn's theme here.

The Graduate Student Center will be sponsoring events that explore these questions and more, so please join us for a year of terrific events devoted to this fascinating topic! And please let us know if you have any event ideas you'd like to see take place.
