As a part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Knowledge Teach-In, Harris Sokoloff and Jonathan Zimmerman will bring together several speakers from the Penn community to debate one of the most contentious issues in contemporary American life: sexual harassment. The session will aim not simply to shed light on this complicated question, but also to see if we can establish civil conversations between people with very different answers to it. Registration not required.
As a part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Knowledge Teach-In, the Philadelphia Writing Project (PhilWP) will screen American Creed, a new PBS film that explores values underlying American identity and encourages dialogue across difference. Join us to discuss issues raised in the film and learn ways to co-construct knowledge and strategies for engaging in civic participation and civic discourse. Registration not required.
Penn’s Mask and Wig is an all-male comedy troupe that has entertained Philadelphians and the Penn community since 1889 with its original revues. This year’s production, I Am What I Amazon, has been adapted to appeal to children ages 12 and under. Bring the kids for lunch (hot dogs, chips, beverage) and the show.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.

Considered the most prestigious and well-funded education business plan competition, since 2010 the Milken-Penn GSE Education Business Plan Competition (EBPC) has earned a name for itself by attracting innovative ideas from around the world and spotting winning education innovations early on. Previous finalists have gone on to grow their ventures, attract investors, and have a positive impact on education.
Join Penn Alumni Education and The Penn Fund for an afternoon of Macbeth! Penn’s Shakespeare scholar, Professor Zachary Lesser will offer a talk on the play and its author, after which we’ll enjoy a three-course lunch at Riva at Navy Pier. Together we’ll walk to the brand new, flexible performance space, The Yard, to enjoy a matinee performance of Macbeth. Created by Aaron Posner and Teller (of Penn & Teller), you’re sure to enjoy their enchanted take on “the Scottish play” even more after Dr. Lesser’s lecture!
Tickets are $75 (includes show, lecture, and lunch), and are limited and non-refundable.
Join us over Penn’s Alumni Weekend for an annual tradition that celebrates the extraordinary impact of our entire community, including the Voices in Education program and Education Alumni Awards.
