Penn Global Week
Various Times
Perry World House and Iron Gate Theater

Penn Global Week is an opportunity to showcase the depth and breadth of cultural activity and global programming available across campus and to engage the University community. There are four featured, public events, hosted by Penn Global, that anchor Penn Global Week.

This year's theme is wellness, encapsulated by our slogan Be Well in the World. Inspired by the Wellness at Penn initiative, each main event will serve as a platform to better understand and practice wellness, whether on campus or abroad.
