FRES FY19 Annual Report Tallies Achievements

aerial view of Penn's campusWelcome to the Facilities & Real Estate Services FY19 Annual Report. I’m proud to be able to share this document with you and all that it represents of our division’s work in alignment with the principles of the Penn Compact 2022 — Inclusion, Innovation, Impact.

The Penn Compact is the vision that Dr. Gutmann has put forward to guide the University — a vision designed to motivate all members of the Penn community to:

•    BE RADICALLY INCLUSIVE
•    INNOVATE
•    AND TO POSITIVELY IMPACT THEIR LOCAL, NATIONAL, AND GLOBAL COMMUNITIES.

For FRES, Inclusion means embracing diversity and striving for excellence. In our work, we reach out to those around us and find the value in what everyone has to offer. Inclusion is an exchange between Penn and our community – starting in West Philadelphia and reaching out globally.

Innovation occurs daily at FRES, as we make every effort for multidisciplinary excellence in the work we do for all of our schools and centers across campus. Few groups at Penn deal with the broad mix of customers, challenges, contractors, and neighbors that we do in Facilities. The ability to think creatively and act quickly is a valuable asset in our staff.

FRES makes an Impact each day with our work to establish and maintain a sustainable and innovative urban campus. Our guiding principles are found in our campus development plan, Penn Connects, which has led our vision since 2006, now in version 3.0.
As you review our projects and activities in FY19, keep in mind the diverse talents and skill sets of FRES staff that make our vision a reality. I’m sure you’ll agree that each of us plays a part in the success of this University and contributes to the Power of Penn.
