    Public Health and Wellbeing

    Wellness at Penn’s Public Health and Wellbeing division seeks to create a community of care through advocacy, education, and action. Our dedicated staff focuses on a wide variety of healthy living topics, including sleep hygiene, stress reduction, nutrition, exercise, and sexual health. Public Health and Wellbeing also consists of Immunization and Insurance Compliance, the Penn Farm, and the SUPER (Substance Use, Prevention, Education, and Recovery) Program.

    Penn Violence Prevention

    Penn Violence Prevention (PVP) aims to engage the Penn community in the prevention of sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking on campus. The goal is to not only ensure students have access to safe and effective resources, but to provide preventative education focused on building healthy relationships, understanding consent, reaching out to friends in need, and being an active bystander. Members of the Penn community can visit the Penn Violence Prevention website for more information about support and reporting options, and educational programs.


    Disabilities Services
    Disabilities Services

    The Weingarten Center provides services for students who self-identify with a disability in order to ensure equal access to all University programs, activities, and services. The process begins when a student requests an accommodation, provides documentation of their condition, and meets with a Disability Specialist. Students who receive accommodations work with the Disability Services staff to coordinate their academic accommodations as well as accessible housing, dining, communication, and technology. Through ongoing collaboration with the Weingarten Center, students learn to identify and utilize individualized accommodations and strategies that support their full participation in university life. 

    The Associate Vice President for Equity and Title IX Officer

    The Associate Vice President for Equity and Title IX Officer (AVP) is responsible for providing strategic leadership of the University’s efforts to comply with Title IX and foster gender equity. The AVP also oversees the investigation of complaints against Penn faculty, staff and enrolled students alleging violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy.

    The Associate Vice President for Equity and Title IX Officer works with the Penn community to implement the Sexual Misconduct Policy which became effective August 14, 2020. This office also works within the Penn community to educate students, faculty and staff about the process for responding to these complaints and assists with educational efforts to prevent sexual violence. Throughout the investigative process, the AVP ensures that those making complaints and those responding to complaints are treated fairly and respectfully.
