Learning At Penn

With interdisciplinarity in our DNA, and Penn's founder, Benjamin Franklin’s spirit of reinvention inherent in all we do, we are persistent in our quest for knowledge. This knowledge is pursued not solely with a sense of self-fulfillment, but also with the purpose of being in service to society.
