Since its founding, Penn has prioritized the education and development of global citizens. The University has since deepened this commitment through the strategic investment and cultivation of the people, partnerships, and opportunities that make Penn a leader of global impact. As a result, today the University stands as a preeminent global institution.

Join our 10th anniversary events to celebrate the transformative impact of Penn Global on the University and recognize our many partners on campus and around the world integral to our work. Together, we bring the world to Penn and Penn to the world.
