Apply to Become a Faculty Affiliate

Perry World House (PWH), the home of global engagement on Penn's campus, is now accepting applications for faculty affiliates.

Central to our mission is bringing the academic knowledge of the University of Pennsylvania to bear on some of the world’s most pressing global policy challenges, and to foster international policy engagement within and beyond the Penn community. To further advance these aims, our faculty affiliates are researchers with diverse approaches to global inquiry from across all of Penn’s schools.

We invite University of Pennsylvania faculty to apply as affiliates. We expect affiliated faculty to participate in some of our events throughout the year, and we will provide opportunities for our affiliates to meet and interact with our visitors and students, as well as listing them on our website.
