PennSONG analyzes social norms around corruption

I’m very proud of PennSONG, and in particular Raj Patel, for our contribution to Chatham House’s recent investigation into corruption in Nigeria.

I highly encourage you to go read the executive summary & recommendations – or better yet, just read the whole thing!

Congratulations 2017 PPE Grads!

Thanks to everyone for another amazing year! Our class of 2017 was our largest cohort yet, with 115 graduates. The number of students earning honors doubled. We had 10 inductees to Phi Beta Kappa. But more important than the accolades, thank you for all the genuine and unique personal dedication and inspiration. It’s been an both an honor and a pleasure working with all of you!

Congratulations PPE Honors Students!

It’s always exciting to see the culmination of months of hard work as all the honors theses are submitted at the end of the year. I’m particularly proud of all of the Honors students who presented their research at the first PPE Student Research Poster Session, and thanks to everyone who came out!

Penn Together

Proud to stand with fellow students, staff, and faculty in solidarity against the vicious, racist attacks against our community.


Congratulations to all PPE Graduates

I want to thank everyone for an exciting and successful first year in the program! From your help on new initiatives and outreach to interesting chats over coffee, it’s been wonderful to be a part of your experience. And for everyone still around, next year sets up to be exciting as well with a new website, new study abroad opportunities, and a concerted push to help spread the word on the impressive research you’re planning!
