This February, Penn Arts and Sciences presented the 2018 Grad Ben Talks, an afternoon of TED Talk-style presentations by graduate students representing the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and professional master’s programs.

The College of Liberal and Professional Studies, together with LPS’ professional graduate student association LPS gov and Women’s Campaign International, sponsored a panel discussion at Penn Law on Friday, March 16. Panelists included retired Ambassador Richard N. Swett, the Honorable Christopher Shays, Mexican Consul General Alicia Kerber-Palma and the Honorable Marjorie Margolies. The topic of the panel was diplomacy and negotiation in "A Time Like No Other." The interactive conversation with students was remarkable.
