As a leading global university, Penn faculty and students bring Penn’s knowledge to the world, and the world to Penn.
Among Penn’s 176 research and policy centers whose mission it is to promote discovery and knowledge creation of global importance are the Christopher H. Browne Center for International Politics, which focuses on issues of international relations, international security, and international political economy; and the Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative, which fosters better-informed policy-making on issues related to business and the economy.
Perry World House, the campus hub for international programs and activities, unifies these powerful synergies and maximizes their impact.
While Perry World House welcomes world leaders and scholars to Penn’s campus, nearly 2,000 faculty and 2,500 students go out into the world each year to teach, research, study, and serve. And the Penn Wharton China Center, which opened in 2015 in Beijing, helps to strengthen the University’s vital involvement in an increasingly connected global environment.
