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, Water, Games, Sound, Health, Media, and Innovation. The 2018-2019 theme is "Why."

Penn Theme for 2018-2019 academic year is “Why?”. The question “why?” is often associated with scientific inquiry and development, but the same question invites us to foster exploration, experimentation and discovery in our professional and personal lives. This year the Graduate Student Center is doing just that. We are creating a series of events that cater to graduate students’ various professional and personal needs. Students are invited to explore why they have the needs that they have, and experiment with professional and personal development tools and ideas presented to them by the Graduate Student Center and our partners. Our goal is to empower graduate students to make positive discoveries about themselves and the larger Penn community.
