An Update from President Magill

June 2023
"Last October, I charged the Red and Blue Advisory Committee of faculty, staff, and student leaders to hear from all corners of our Penn community; to be forward-looking and bold; and to consider where we, together, might take Penn."


A message from the Red and Blue Committee Chair, John L. Jackson, Jr., Ph.D.

We have an unwavering commitment to academic excellence, an enterprising spirit, and an ability to work across wide-ranging fields of knowledge. Looking forward to our next century and with a sense of urgency about making a critical difference through the pursuit of our missions, we ask the Penn community to envision our future through our teaching, research, and service:
