Foundations and Frontiers

A Strategic Plan for Penn Arts and Sciences

It has been said that those who will flourish are at the interface between arts and sciences and who possess that rebellious nature to appreciate the beauty of both. The School’s new strategic plan is designed to do just that. We are excited to introduce Foundations and Frontiers as a blueprint for the future of Penn Arts and Sciences.

The plan emphasizes our foundations in faculty excellence, in outstanding educational programs, for our undergraduates, graduate students, and lifelong learners. The plan also introduces our frontiers—the opportunities we have as a School and a University to push the boundaries of transformative discovery and pedagogical innovation.

We believe this is a blueprint for the future that will continue to promote excellence--but even more importantly—position Penn Arts and Sciences at that rebellious interface where innovation and discovery occur.
