We believe that Penn students of all backgrounds are in a unique position to influence education policies that affect K-12 students. By gaining a deeper understanding of local and national education policy issues and raising awareness across campus, the Penn Education Society advocates for excellent educational opportunities on behalf of all K-12 students across the country.
The Penn Education Society is an organization committed to fostering a community of leaders in education reform. We seek to accomplish this in three ways:
- We provide undergraduates with opportunities to engage in an ongoing dialogue via speaker events, regular meetings, and online resources.
- We connect with other on- and off-campus initiatives and local advocacy groups to implement change in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
- We publish the annual Penn Undergraduate Education Policy Review, which encourages undergraduate research in education.
The vision of the Penn Education Society is to build a community of motivated undergraduates at Penn who become lifelong investors in education policy and reform.
