Andrea Mitchell, CW'67, and Alan Greenspan have made a gift to endow the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy. The Andrea Mitchell Center will provide an unparalleled platform for students, faculty, and a broad public audience to explore some of society’s most pressing concerns and enhance Penn’s stature as a hub for scholarship on democratic institutions and issues. 

Penn President Amy Gutmann said, “Andrea and Alan share the University of Pennsylvania’s commitment to the essential role of path-breaking scholarship along with robust, reasoned, and evidence-based dialogue in a democratic society. The Andrea Mitchell Center will engage students and faculty across disciplines in such essential research and dialogue. It also will be a premier public forum for reasoned discourse about democracy. We are all extraordinarily grateful for their exemplary generosity and abiding commitment to the study of democracy and to Penn.”
