Perry World House was founded to help advance practical, interdisciplinary approaches to some of the world’s most urgent challenges. We combine Penn’s excellence in scholarship with a unique collaborative engagement platform, including a state-of-the art new building on Penn’s campus that allows multiple points-of-view and ideas to converge. Perry World House seeks to have long-standing influence on Penn students’ global engagement opportunities by actively encouraging students to explore real-world problems, hands-on. Perry World House is a place where students and faculty convene and cooperate to explore and test ideas, developing cutting-edge interdisciplinary research. But we don’t stop there. We want Penn’s research and knowledge to have far reaching influence and drive forward real world improvement. By building a network that connects faculty, the global policy community, and distinguished visitors, we leverage the deep expertise at Penn to help catalyze and drive impact.
