Global Civic Engagement

Embracing its role as a great 21st-century American university, Penn partners with communities, organizations, and governments around the world to build networks, share ideas, and look for innovative, cross-disciplinary solutions to global problems.

The global impact of the Penn education is felt in daily life on campus. Penn is a leader in recruiting international faculty and is home to one of the largest and most diverse international communities in the Ivy League.

Penn is incredibly welcoming to international students, helping them transition to life in Philadelphia and embracing their contributions to the Penn community. The sheer number of nationalities, religions, and points of view represented on Penn’s campus make it the perfect place to prepare for life and leadership in an increasingly diverse world.
