On September 22nd, the University of Pennsylvania marked the opening of the Perry World House with a ribbon-cutting by President Amy Gutmann. Attended by dignitaries, students, alumni, faculty, and special guests, Penn’s new center for global engagement aims to advance interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on the world’s most urgent global affairs challenges. Drawing on the wide range of expertise across the University’s 12 Schools and Centers, Perry World House will connect Penn with policymakers, practitioners and researchers from around the world to advance innovative policy proposals.
Located at 38th Street and Locust Walk, Perry World House was established through a gift from Richard C. Perry, a Penn alumnus and a member of the University’s Board of Trustees, and his wife, Lisa Perry.
