Making History: The Campaign for Penn Final Report

March 8, 2013 - Penn recently released the Final Report on the record-setting Making History capital campaign, which raised over $4.3 billion from 326,952 donors for the University. As part of the campaign, GSE raised $56.8 million from 3,549 donors, surpassing the stated goal of $52 million.

In a thank you letter to the GSE community, Dean Andy Porter said "As I look back at the University's Making History Campaign, I am once again reminded of how powerful we are when we work with one another. I extend my personal thanks and share the gratitude of the entire GSE community." Among other achievements, the funds helped Penn GSE to admit the largest, most academically gifted and most diverse class in the School's history; to welcome five new dynamic scholars to the faculty; and to earn a position in the top 10 best education schools in the country.
