As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2020 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities.
We call this ‘2020 Vision,’ and with it we answer complexity with clarity, achieve excellence with diversity, and open doors for students of all backgrounds by opening Penn’s doors to them.
