MEET PENN’S INCOMING CLASS
P resident A my Gutma nn and Provost Vincent Price announced Wednesday that Pam Grossman, an education professor at Stanford, will be the next dean of the Graduate School of Education. On Wednesday evening, education professors voiced their support for their choice, citing Grossman’s extensive experience in teacher education. “We’re very excited to have a dean coming in with an extensive background in studying excellence in teaching,” Professor of Education Michael Nakkula said. “As a GSE Dean, few things are as important as understanding what it takes to develop the strongest teachers possible.” Grossman received a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Teacher Education from Stanford University in 1988 and has taught there since 2000.

lawsuit against the state within the next few months, according to Executive Director of the Education Law Center Rhonda Brownstein. Since 2011, the School District of Philadelphia has faced declining budgets. Over the past three years, the school district has operated with a cumulative three year loss of over $790 million. “By failing to prov ide adequate f u nd i ng to a l low a l l students to meet standards, the state is violating the ‘thorough and efficient clause’ of the Pennsylvania constitution,” Brownstein said.
As a professor, her research interests are teacher education and certification, staff development and English education. She currently heads Stanford’s Center to Support Excellence in Teaching, an organization that studies the qualities of effective teachers. She is known for her dedication to training quality teachers for public schools and to addressing problems in education systems with high teacher turnover. Maureen Cotterill, the manager of Center for Collaborative Research and Practice in Teacher Education at Penn, said some question the importance of teacher education. She said Grossman’s presence at the school will alleviate these questions. Professors like professor of education Bob Boruch said they were excited to speak with the new dean about their own disciplines. “My colleagues and I are looking forward to talking with Dr. Grossman about what we in the Quantitative Methods division are doing in regard to research on training,” he said Faculties in Teacher Education Program also showed enthusiasm for Grossman. “There are so many connections be-

LGBT and religion to merge with new fellowship
The Queer Christian Fellowship returning after three-year hiatus BY COREY STERN Contributing Writer Nursing sophomore Andre Rosario is bringing the religious and LGBT communities together. As a practicing Catholic and openly LGBT student, R osa r io is reboot i ng t he Queer Christian Fellowship on campus. While the LGBT Center will play a role in its re-establishment, the QCF will fall under the umbrella of the Christian Association. QCF was first established at Penn in 2006 but folded in 2011 due to declining student
involvement. “Like all of our student organizations, the QCF sort of waxed and waned depending on interest,” LGBT Center Associate Director Rebecca Schept said. “In 2011, there were a bunch of students who were really passionate about it and when they graduated, there was no one to carry the torch.” Rosario decided to grasp that torch after he was one of eight Penn students attending the Creating Change Conference — the nation’s largest annual LGBT conference, held in Houston this past Januar y. Schept and LGBT Center Director Bob Schoenberg challenged the students they brought to take an idea from the conference
and bring it to life at Penn. “I was interested in going to the conference because I knew that this year’s conference would have a lot of workshops about LGBT outreach in religious communities,” Rosario said. Upon his return, he took up Schept and Schoenberg’s challenge and was determ i ned to br i ng back t he QCF. He spoke to administrators at the LGBT Center, the Christian Association, the Newman Center and the Office of the Chaplain to see how he could revive the QCF. Rosario added that he developed a close relationship with Newman Center Assistant Director Jeff Klein, who spent a great deal of time listening to his plans.
“I have a lot of admiration for Andre for taking a leadership role in bringing together Christians in the LGBT community,” Klein said. “I think that college is a great time for finding yourself and Christianity obviously has a very important role in that but I know that figuring our own sexuality is a big part of that as well.” Also during his return, the Christian Association was also hoping to restart the QCF, but was unsure how they could make it a reality. “We were sure that there were students at Penn who were concerned about the [intersection of their faith and sexuality], but we didn’t know how to start,” Engineering senior and Christian
Association Program Assistant Intern Scott Danielsen said. “So when we first got in contact with Andre and he made it clear that there was more interest out there, we were prepared to help him.” Da nielsen a nd R osa r io hope that QCF will provide an environment where students can freely discuss both their sexuality and Christian beliefs, two things that usually don’t go hand in hand, Danielsen added. “Sometimes in the LGBT community you find stigma around religion and sometimes in the religious community you find stigma around LGBT identity,” Schept said. “So the QCF will be helpful for those who find themselves at the intersection of these
communities at Penn.” “My hope is to create a communit y where people will feel comfortable sharing personal stories and asking questions that they might not be able to ask elsewhere,” Rosario added. Rosario also said that any Penn students interested in the Queer Christian Fellowship can attend the first meeting this evening at 8 p.m. in the basement of Harnwell College House. “It’s going to be a discussion g roup and a suppor t group,” he said. “It’s open to any LGBT Christian, as well as any Christian allies or anyone who is really interested in t alk ing about the intersection of faith and sexuality.”

Student activist displays ‘commitment to action’ Student invited to Clinton hosted conference in Arizona BY ESTHER YOON Contributing Writer A few days after mingling with Chelsea Clinton, Ph.D. student Meicen Sun resumes her normal doctoral student life as she walks into the Penn Bookstore. A distinguished activist, Sun attended the Clinton Global Initiative University, or CGI U, in A rizona this past weekend. Besides giving attendees the opportunity to spot celebrities such as Jimmy Kimmel, the conference pledged to develop each young leaders’ projects which take action on global challenges. Su n’s “Com m it ment t o Action” project centers on the international criminal prosecution of Kenyan state leaders for crimes against humanit y. W hile meeting other inspired leaders at the conference, she discovered a resounding message. “There was one very direct impression that I got from the conference,” Sun said. “We are not alone.” Throughout the year, and as a prerequisite of attend-
ing the CGI U meeting, students like Sun develop their own Commitments to Action: new initiatives that address specific challenges on campus, in local communities, or around the world. Young leaders like Sun also found encouragement in sharing their ideas with one another. “I initially wondered if my project fit in — was it too outlandish, too out there?” she said. “But when I got there, I realized that everyone had a really big idea and was taking small, concrete steps. “ CGI U is an annual conference organized by the Clinton Foundation and is hosted by Bill and Chelsea Clinton. T he meet i ng broug ht to gether more than 1,100 students to make a difference in CGI U’s five focus areas: education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation and public health. “This year, John McCain and his wife were present, and Jimmy Kimmel was the host for the plenary session,” Sun said. “There were tons of other celebrities and activists and distinguished individuals ... Bill Clinton and Chelsea walked alongside us and helped us with the service as well.”
Sun added that CGI U is not just a leadership event, but a growing community of young leaders who don’t simply talk global issues — they take real, concrete steps toward solving them. Sun has already seen a great deal of the world before attending the conference. Bor n and raised in China, she received secondary schooling in Singapore, an undergraduate degree from Princeton University, studied abroad in F rance for fieldwork and worked for the United Nations in Africa. Ultimately, Sun’s project goal is to “establish a network of international justice facilitators and also to create an avenue where these v ictims of justice can express their needs so that their voices can be heard,” she said. Sun encouraged both Penn undergraduates and graduates to use their knowledge to make a snowballing impact across the globe. “A nother strong feeling that I got was the reassurance I felt in being able to pursue my intellectual inquiries while using my knowledge to ma ke a concrete change in the world,” she said. “And yes, there is a way to do both.”

Louder than words
THE QUAKING POINT | Penn can no longer afford to play a passive role in its students’ wellbeing — it must be willing to get its hands dirty
he tragedies of this past w inter continue to weigh on our minds. While the inevitable din of investigation, opinion and reflection has finally started to subside, calls for increased dialogue and awareness are as present as ever. The DP recently published a front page article with documents confirming that CAPS has been incompetent and neglectful toward visitors. As with most University-run programs, this shouldn’t come as a particular surprise to many. Nonetheless, it sends a grave and unavoidable message to our campus community: Penn is out of touch with the well-being of its students. CAPS is a necessary first step, but it can only go so far. Even if every Penn student visited CAPS regularly to talk through his or her troubles, it wouldn’t be sufficient. An establishment with innate problems can only do so much by talking things out — dealing with the symptoms is never a worthy substitute for pursuit of a cure. If we want to see genuine progress in improving the quality of life on campus, the University and its community must be willing to get their hands dirty and examine fundamental (and fundamentally flawed) aspects of the Penn community. Penn’s prestige has been dwindling slowly for years, and its inability to promote wellness among its students is only making things worse. At this point, it’s not just questionable for the University to let students figure things out on their own — it’s unacceptable. I often hear people lament that our school cares relatively little for its undergraduates. I can’t say with confidence whether this is true or not, but other universities do seem to allocate significant resources toward fostering happiness among their newcomers. They go out of their way to take care of their own; why can’t our school do the same? Penn seems to value its graduate students and professional research above all else — it can’t be surprised when its neglect of undergraduates leads to mass discontent. It also goes without saying that Penn should deal with its rampant pre-professionalism. It’s a distinct aspect of our campus that rubs off on everyone, finance or non-finance, and breeds a culture of hostility. I’m not just referring to Wharton — I mean the general bureaucracy of large
JONATHAN IWRY classes, uncaring professors, incompetent TAs and unforgiving grading. The competition needs to give way to cooperation. If not, students will value their worth as people by their academic performance, and the good intentions of achievement will instead pave the way for social and educational Darwinism. Neither would it hurt for Penn to take a closer look into its extracurricular groups. It is widely acknowledged that Penn turns a blind eye to many of the goingson among its students, including those that arguably do the worst damage to undergraduates’ emotional and mental health. Taboo though it might be, the University should put more effort into addressing issues like hazing and psychological abuse, not to mention the petty squabbling and ego wars that have come to define so many of our political clubs. Most urgently of all, programs such as CAPS need to be more dependable. When nothing else works and students need someone to talk to, it’s important for them to know that that someone will take them seriously and help them through their issues. But that’s a bare minimum. Counselors like to advise people to put their problems in context. Sometimes, however, it’s the context that’s the problem. Smart and privileged Ivy League students are told to focus on how great they have it, but for many, college is far from great. Penn is plagued with a wide range of issues; I suspect our school itself is to be blamed for ignoring them. The talking cure only goes so far. If our university wants results, it will have to accept the discomfort of facing itself in the mirror. This is about more than mental health — it’s about creating happier Quakers and turning Penn into a better place. Improvement requires meaningful action. And we have our work cut out for us.

True leadership: why I support Gabe Delaney for UA president
tudents at Penn often ask why these elections matter and what the candidates will ultimately do to positively impact their college experience. Penn certainly has many challenges that need to be addressed over the next year, which range from truly addressing mental health to campus diversity issues. The Undergraduate Assembly structure certainly needs reform so that it is responsive to the needs of the student body. As a member of the UA for the last two years, I feel as if I am uniquely qualified to speak to the merits of each presidential candidate. I can confidently say that Gabe Delaney is the candidate with both the necessary vision and leadership to be able to turn his platform proposals into a reality for students. While his opponent may be well connected, she has not developed the kind of relationships with President Amy Gutmann, Provost Vincent Price and Executive Vice President Craig Carnaroli that Gabe has. Furthermore, the manner in which his opponent came off in the presidential debate is not the kind of personality that optimally translates into successful collaboration with those that possess dissenting points of view. We need a leader that focuses on forging unity and consensus within the UA. While serving as vice president, Gabe has done an exemplary job of running UA Steering and acting as the external representative for the UA to student groups. His experience in this capacity uniquely positions him to draw upon relationships he has developed with both students and administrators in order to deliver outcomes as UA president over the next year. He plans to increase the number of clinicians available at CAPS as well as engage with college houses and Greek communities to authentically address mental health on campus. Gabe will also push for
greater diversity in the composition of our faculty, as was originally outlined within the University’s Diversity Action Plan of 2011-12. Also, Gabe is the only candidate that understands that the UA desperately needs internal reform. The culture of the UA is not conducive to answering the needs of students, and we need a real reformer as UA president who is willing to make the necessary structural changes to the body. Gabe offers tangible solutions through proposing the creation of
Delaney is the candidate for UA president with a greater willingness to both engage with political groups on campus and stimulate civic engagement among the student body.” individual liaisons between student groups and the UA to promote a healthy dialogue. He also suggests creating a communications committee to keep students better informed concerning the work of the UA. These courses of action will play a critical role in addressing the concern that the UA is merely the “airport shuttle club,” and Gabe is certainly the only candidate for president that acknowledges the structural inefficiencies of the current UA. These are some of the reasons why critical groups on campus, such as The Daily Pennsylvanian, the Inter-Fraternity Council, the Latino Coalition and the Transfer Student Organization have recently endorsed Delaney’s campaign. As president of the College Republicans and co-chair of the

Penn Political Coalition, I have witnessed the level of involvement that both candidates have had within Penn’s political community. I can wholeheartedly say that Gabe Delaney is the candidate for UA president with a greater willingness to both engage with political groups on campus and stimulate civic engagement among the student body. Both these organizations are largely supporting his candidacy for UA president because he authentically understands the genuine value of student activism. He has not only been involved in multiple constituent groups within the Penn Political Coalition, but also has actively fought to protect minority political expression on campus. Gabe understands that, in order for Penn to thrive, we need a healthy and active political dialogue that serves as an intellectually stimulating force for the student body. Delaney’s detractors wrongly suggest that he fails to deliver results or is solely concerned with rhetoric, but the reality is that he has produced results for student groups over the past year as UA vice president. He also possesses the necessary passion and leadership ability to execute his plans for the student body over the next year as UA president. I am proud to support Gabe’s candidacy for UA president and recommend that everyone visit his web site at gabedelaney.com. The site contains more information about him, the campaign’s platform, and his vice presidential running mate, Julie Bittar. When voting, join me in supporting his effort!

Local activists support potential suit LAWSUIT from page A1 This potential lawsuit follows a 1997 attempt by the city and the Philadelphia School District to sue the state for funding under the “ t hor oug h a nd ef f icient” clause of the state’s constitution. However, the Penn-
sylvania Supreme Court said that this was not an issue for the courts, but rather for the state legislature. Despite this precedent , the potential plaintiffs believe that new circumstances should make the courts consider their case. One reason is that even though the state has implemented the Keystone Exams — stand a r d i z e d t e st s r e q u i r e d for graduation — the state hasn’t prov ided money to ma ke su re t hat students pass, Brownstein said. The potential lawsuit has
THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2014 PAGE A5 earned support from activists around the city. “ To me it is ver y clear that we are out of compliance with our constitution,” Executive Director of Education Voters of Pennsylvania Susan Gobreski said. Education Voters of Pennsylvania, an advocacy group dedicated to securing funding for public schools across the state, is currently lobbying city officials to extend a current sales tax plan, which will give $120 million in revenue to Philadelphia schools. Besides the $120 million,
the school district is asking for an additional $75 million to continue the schools’ normal operations. On March 13, Education Voters of Pennsylvania was one of eight advocacy groups to protest in City Hall for this funding. Activists are calling for more than the minimum $195 million because for school district students, extra funding can go a long way. “This is how you get the things you want to have, like music and science and guidance counselors and librarians,” Gobreski said.

Gelles created three degree programs GELLES from page A1 ter shape today than when he took it over,” said Ram Cnaan, a professor at the graduate school since 1986. “Academically, student-wise, budget-wise — on all fronts, much better.” When Gelles became interim dean in 2001, Universit y ad mi nist rators were questioning the viability of the school, he said. SP2 was overspending its financial aid budget and struggling in the face of fluctuating numbers of applications f rom year to year. These fluctuations could make a difference of $1.2 million in tuition money coming — or failing to come — to the school each year. “ You couldn’t plan, you couldn’t do anything. You were paralyzed,” Gelles said. “You couldn’t hire new faculty because you didn’t know whether you could af ford them. You didn’t know what to set for your financial aid budget because you didn’t know what you could afford.”
W hen then-Penn P resident Judith Rodin informed Gelles that she and a comm it t e e a n a ly z i ng Pen n’s future were considering closing the school or merging it with a different part of Penn, he told her with confidence, “It can be made viable with some very simple steps.”
A path to viability D u r i ng Pen n’s M a k i ng Histor y Campaign, Gelles spearheaded fundraising efforts that raised $33.6 million for SP2 between 2005 and 2012 — a substantial achievement considering that the school had only raised $16 million total in its previous 97 years of existence. But in reinvigorating SP2, Gelles did not rely only on donations. He felt he had to make systematic improvements that would guarantee consistent income for the school. His f irst goal when ap pointed dean in 2003 was to create new degree programs that would attract a wider range of students. At first, Gelles looked at the work of the 19 faculty members at the school and realized that most of them specialized in social policy — areas such as welfare reform
and mental health policy — as opposed to social work. However, at the time, SP2 — then called the School of Social Work — only offered a Master’s in Social Work and a Ph.D. in Social Welfare.
The single most controversial, difficult part of being the dean here was to change the name of the school and not have ‘social work’ in it in any clear fashion.” — Richard Gelles, Dean, School of Social Policy & Practice
“Light bulb number one: W hat if we of fer a social policy degree?” said Gelles, recalling his thought process. “I said, ‘We’re not taking advantage of what our faculty have, we’re not taking advantage of what their strengths are.’” One of his first ideas was to implement a Master of Science in Nonprofit Leadership program at Penn’s School of Social Work, following his negative experience on the board of a nonprofit in
Philadelphia that he felt was organized poorly. The program launched in 2005, and one year later the school began offering a Master of Science in Social Policy as well. “We expanded the portfolio of degree options, which has benefited the school because it brought in a broader set of students,” SP2 professor Dennis Culhane said. “This was a very critical period to transition to a multiple degree school, and Dean Gelles provided excellent leadership during that process.”
Putting the ‘2’ in SP2 While discussions for the master’s in nonprofit leadership were still underway in 2004, Gelles felt it was imperative to change the school’s name from the School of Social Work to the School of Social Policy & Practice. “[ T he ne e d f o r a ne w name] was confirmed when the program was debated by the University’s Academic Policy Committee,” Gelles said. “In the course of that discussion, one of the members of the committee said, ‘Well this is a very interesting degree program. What’s it doing in a school of social work?’”

THE DAILY PENNSYLVANIAN Gelles said social work is associated with a “strong brand recognition” — people often associate it with low salaries, working with the poor and the transfer of wealth from the rich to the poor. Although he said these “brand” perceptions are often incorrect, having “social work” in the title of the school was limiting the types of applicants it received. “The single most controversial, difficult part of being the dean here was to change the name of the school and not have ‘social work’ in it in any clear fashion,” Gelles said. “Professional social workers in and outside of the school felt that to change the name and not keep ‘social work’ in it was disrespectful to the profession.” Culhane, who was a professor at the school throughout Gelles’ term as dean, said changing the school’s name was a “difficult process to navigate” because “there was a concern that the identity of the school was changing.” Never t heless , Cu l h a ne feels Gelles succeeded in ma i nt a i n i ng t he school’s central identity despite the change. “I think it’s important that we continue to always reassess who we are and try to preser ve that identity going forward,” Culhane said. “And I do believe the values of the school as they were before remain at the core of the school.” Expanding programs Although the Master’s in Socia l Work rema i ns the largest degree program at SP2 — with about 250 more students than any other program — Gelles said the new Nonprofit Leadership and Master ’s in Social Policy programs provide a buffer from the fluctuations in MSW applications that previously debilitated the school. En rol l ment i n t he new programs has consistently increased since their introduction in 2005 and 2006. C u r r ent ly, t he nonpr of it leadership program hosts 43 students, while the social policy degree has 34. At the time when the nonprofit leadership program was created, it was the only f reestand ing deg ree pro gram of its k ind. A f ter it proved successful, Harvard and La Salle universities both adopted similar programs. In 2007, the school added one more degree — the Doctorate in Clinical Social Work, which was also the first of its kind in the country. Gelles expected the degree to attract about five students each year, but instead it accrued 18 students in its first year — and that was without offering financial aid. Currently, the program boasts 38 students. Following Penn’s adoption of the program, Rutgers University and the University of Tennessee created similar programs. Gelles said the idea for the program was not his own, however. “It ca me out of a st a f f meeting where two of the associate deans walked in with this idea, and I thought, ‘Well, what the heck, let’s give it a shot,’” he said. Cnaan praised Gelles’ willingness to support potentially risky ideas. “ He w a s wh at I wou ld call an ‘enabling dean’ — in the sense that if you had an idea, you needed seed money for something, you wanted to start a program ... his approach was ‘why not?’” Cnaan said. “Many people in his position would say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to take a risk.’”
Valuable leadership Students also valued Gelles’ leadership style, including Britney Thornton, a second-year MSW student and president of the SP2 student body. “He’s been rea lly good about helping students navigate SP2 as an institution,” Thornton said. “If students have a ny compla i nt s, he helps them w ith the correct protocol to advocate for ourselves and actually get things addressed.”
Thornton also appreciated Gelles’ laid-back personality and Boston accent. His office is filled with Red Sox paraphernalia, and he even owns a bright red “Yankees Hater” hat — a gift from one of his students. Cnaan recalls countless conversations with Gelles, discussing their shared passion for sports, while other professors remember him fondly as well. “Dean Gelles’ keen ob servations and dry wit have broken the tedium of many meetings,” Susan Sorenson, a professor at SP2 since 2006, said in an email. Gelles’ leadership has taken him beyond Penn into the realm of advocacy as well. In 1997, Gelles published “The Book of Dav id: How P reser v ing Families Can C o s t C h i l d r e n’s L i v e s ,” which led him to advocate for change in federal policy. He worked with advocacy groups, United States Senators and members of the House of Representatives to help pass the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, which shifted legal priorities from keeping families intact to an increased importance on the safety and well-being of children.
Opening doors Throughout his years at SP2, Gelles shared his expertise on child welfare with MSW students. Becca Stern, a second-year student who is interested in pursuing a career in child welfare, has taken two courses with Gelles. She praised him both as a teacher and a mentor. “He’s really shaped the direction that I’m hoping to work in,” Stern said. “He helped me find an internship last summer that was really life changing. ... He introduced me to the organization, he encouraged me to apply and he’s been really supportive.”
He was what I would call an ‘enabling dean’ — in the sense that if you had an idea … his approach was ‘why not.’” — Ram Cnaan,
Professor, School of Social Policy & Practice
G el les enabled St er n’s internship experience at a law firm in New York that works on foster care reform. But he also helped establish SP2 professor Johanna Greeson with child welfare connections that she felt were crucial to her career. He arranged meetings for her with the deputy commissioners of the Philadelphia Department of Human Services, which allowed her to receive critical research grants. Even before Greeson accepted a position at SP2 in 2012, Gelles told her he would be able to get her access to the local child welfare system. “He was very clear from t he get-go t hat yes, t hat would be possible and he would assist. And he’s completely followed through on all of that,” Greeson said. “That is so important — that makes or breaks your career.” Gelles’ talents at opening doors in the careers of his faculty and students translated to his decision to literally reposition the door of SP2’s Caster Building in 2008, which now opens onto Locust Walk. Since the building’s construction in 1962, the main entrance faced a courtyard isolated from Locust, which he felt posed a visibility problem for the school. While he jokingly claims this will be his greatest legacy, professors and students believe he has truly opened many doors for SP2, widening its opportunities for the future. “He financially established our school so that we can be in a good position to grow in the future,” Thornton said. “He really set up the next dean to build on what it was he was able to solidify.”

Nonetheless, Grossman says her focus as a dean will be much broader than her individual research and she will support a faculty with diverse interests. Cotterill voiced her confidence that Grossman will work as a “bridge builder,” connecting different departments in fostering excellent teachers. Grossman also said GSE will further engage with local schools and neighborhoods — something Kate Kinney Grossman, a Secondary Education Coordinator applauded. “Part of our excitement for having a leader like Dr. Grossman is that Penn has a potential to be a leader of Philadelphia schools,” Kinney

Grossman — who is not related to Pam Grossman — said. During her tenure as dean, Grossman also hopes to support students who want to pursue research. “I’m also hoping that we can work with professional schools across the University on the issue of research that supports students,” she said. Grossman will not assume her new duties until Jan. 1, 2015. Her predecessor, Andy Porter, will remain dean of GSE until the end of 2014 — instead of until the end of this semester, as the University originally announced last year — in order to facilitate the transition between the two deans. Until assuming her position, Grossman will be meeting faculty and administrators to learn more about GSE and the University as a whole. She will visit Philadelphia next week for the American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting and come to Penn as well. “I’m ver y much looking forward to joining the Penn community and GSE,” Grossman said.

Isn’t it time you learned about how gender and sex influence everything you do? Register for these Fall 2014 courses! Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies Course Highlights GSWS326 - SEXUAL IDEOLOGY Instructor: Kirk Fiereck, GSWS Postdoctoral Fellow TR 10:30am-12:00pm How do prevailing economic and political ideologies influence experiences and theories of gender and sexuality? This advanced undergraduate course will examine this question from disciplinary perspectives across the social sciences and humanities, with a particular focus on ethnographic inquiry. The main theme students will explore is that sex, gender and sexuality are social relations produced through the interplay of individual desires and social norms, not innate facets of self or personhood. The course will survey theoretical and practical discussions over the possibilities and limitations of envisioning both sexual marginality and normativity as sites for political action by engaging in assignments that get students to apply what they learn in class to real-world contexts.
GSWS002 - GENDER & SOCIETY Instructor: Melanie Adley, Associate Director of GSWS TR 3:00pm-4:20pm This course will introduce students to the ways in which sex, gender, and sexuality mark our bodies, influence our perceptions of self and others, organize families and work like, delimit opportunities for individuals and groups of people, as well as impact the terms of local and transnational economic exchange. We will explore the ways in which sex, gender, and sexuality work with other markers of difference and social status such as race, age, nationality, and ability to further demarcate possibilities, freedoms, choices, and opportunities available to people.

Injury bug bites Penn again in defeat

BY COREY HENRY Staff Writer
BY TITUS ADKINS Staff Writer
T h is yea r, when coach Joh n Yurkow walks out to the mound, he won’t be calling junior Ronnie Glenn to the mound, he’ll be sending Glenn to the dugout to end his outing. The Yurkow era has seen plenty of new beginnings, with one of the most notable being Glenn’s transition from closer to starter. Last year, Glenn excelled as a reliever, tying a school record and leading the Ivy League with eight saves. Glenn was also named in the National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association’s Mid-Season Stopper of the Year Watch List for his efforts. Penn recruited Glenn to be a closer, but one unique trait of his that made Yurkow take a second look: Having a left-handed starter can be rare in baseball so Yurkow decided to transition his southpaw closer into the rotation to keep a leg up on the competition. D u r i n g t he s u m m e r, G le n n pitched as a starter, which helped to make his eventual transition easier. A f ter competing in the summer baseball league, it was almost implied that Glenn would be a starter for the upcoming season. “It was k ind of a n unspoken thing,” Glenn said. “I don’t remember ever actually sitting down and talking to [ Yurkow] about it.” After becoming accustomed to pitching one to two innings as a closer, it took some to time for Glenn to get used to seven- and eight-inning outings. “When you’re closing it’s a high adrenaline thing,” Yurkow said. “Now he’s learning to pace himself.” “It took a little while to get the endurance I needed,” Glenn added. “It takes a lot of focus mentally.” One of the hardest things for Glenn to adjust to was dealing with a pitch count. Most relievers come in and throw as hard as they possibly can for one inning , but starters have to pick and choose when to ramp up the velocity on the batters they face. After a few rough starts, Glenn put together one of his best performances against Lafayette in the Quakers’ home-opening doubleheader. After taking a no-hitter into the fourth inning, Glenn finished seven innings of work with

teammates, Borden describes herself as the team’s “bow person.” Ever since her freshman year, Borden has been making customized hair ribbons for her teammates for each game. “I haven’t made any bows since Florida,” she explained with a laugh. “I’ve been busy.” Even though her hair was absent of a ribbon during Sunday’s doubleheader against St. Joe’s, she managed to make a statement with her headwear. To keep warm in the 40-degree weather, she donned a rainbow knitted bear hat, complete
In its final battle before facing a formidable foe in Princeton, Penn men’s tennis was forced to weather a Red Storm. Though Penn battled hard, the Quakers ultimately couldn’t batten down the hatches and fell to St. John’s, 5-2. Already off to a slow start due to injuries, Tuesday’s matchup with the Red Storm (9-5) gave the Red and Blue (4-9) more aches and pains. With senior co-captain Nikola Kocovic missing after rolling an ankle, his replacement, sophomore Vim De Alwis, was forced out of action due to an ankle injury in the second set of his match at first singles. The Quakers’ toughest battle this season has been with injuries and keeping the team healthy enough to compete. “We needed a win really to go into the Ivy Leagues with a little momentum,” coach David Geatz said, “I’ve never seen worse luck in my life with the team. We’ve already lost a couple guys this year; our top two guys rolled their ankles. We’ve got so many guys out of the lineup we’re just trying to cobble together a team.” As hard as the injury riddled Red and Blue fought, it was not enough to defeat the fully healthy St. John’s squad it matched up against. Only junior Jeremy Court and senior Zach Katz were able to pick up individual match wins. “If we were healthy we would have done well, but we weren’t and just fell short,” sophomore Blaine Willenborg said after returning from an injury of his own. “Hopefully we’re going to give a lot of energy tomorrow in practice and carr y that for ward to Saturday against Princeton and do well.” The season began for Penn with high hopes, as it fielded a fully healthy roster that made other elite programs cringe. However, after losing junior Ismael Lahlou for the season due to surgery and having other players fall in and out of the lineup at the hands of injuries, the Quakers found themselves stumbling out of the gates.

Junior pitcher Alexis Borden has established herself as a Penn softball legend in a relatively short period of time. With barely more than two full seasons under her belt, the right-hander is already the program’s all-time career leader in wins and strikeouts.
SOFTBALL | The junior record-setter is defined by her on-field flair as well as her accomplishments BY LAINE HIGGINS Staff Writer For Penn softball junior star pitcher Alexis Borden, the middle of five children, the sport has been a family affair. “I grew up on softball — I’ve been playing since I was five or six,” she said. Two of her aunts earned national titles playing softball for UCLA
and each of Borden’s four siblings tried out the sport. “I’m the only one that stuck with it,” she said. “I didn’t really know it would turn into a college experience.” So far, the pitcher’s college experience has been anything but ordinary. After just two full seasons with the Quakers, Borden has pitched the only two no-hitters in Penn history and holds the program records for career strikeouts and victories, with 424 and 43, respectively. Despite her talent on the pitching mound, Borden maintains a silly side. Known as “AC” to her

The Quakers finished the season 8-20 with a 5-9 record in Ivy play, including a 2-7 finish to the season after Singer spoke with The Daily Pennsylvanian on Feb. 12. Singer, a 6-foot-11, 220-pound center, committed to Penn after attending the Quakers’ matchup with La Salle on Jan. 4. In his interview with the DP, Singer said his biggest strengths were his “ability to run the floor faster than most big guys” and his defense . The high school senior also said that Penn assistant coach Jason Polykoff was the coach that recruited him and sold him on Penn, adding

Singer was influenced by Polykoff M. HOOPS from page B1 that Polykoff was “there for me and every question that I need[ed].” When asked why he chose Pen n over ot her schools , Singer highlighted the aca-
demic possibilities that Penn had to offer. “I chose Penn because of many reasons,” he said. “Obviously, they are an Ivy school with the academics and the education. There is nothing else like it. Although basketball is why I’m going to school [and] what I want to do, to fall back on a great education and get the degree that I want to do is really attractive to me.” He a l s o ad d e d t h at he enjoyed both the team and coaching staff. After the Red
SP OR TS and Blue swept Cornell and Columbia on Feb. 7-8, Signer expressed his excitement for the upcoming season. “I think there is a lot of upside with this team, especially with the new recruits coming in,” he said. “I’ve seen most of them play. I’m rea l ly excited for what is ahead for us and I’m excited to be a Quaker and come in and play some basketball.” Now, whether Singer will be in a Penn uniform next year has been placed in doubt.
Glenn had his best start vs. Lafayette BASEBALL from page B1 three runs on four hits and seven strikeouts. “I’ve been improving every outing,” Glenn said. “The more innings you pitch, the more experience you get.” “ He pit ched g r e at l a st weekend,” Yurkow added. With Ivy play on the hori-
THE DAILY PENNSYLVANIAN zon, the conference will be scrambling to find a way to thwart Glenn on the mound as a starter rather than a reliever. “ They haven’t seen me much other than a few innings out of the bullpen,” Glenn said. Yurkow is especially excited about what the transition will do to opposing batters facing Glenn to start off the game. Their unfamiliarity gives Glenn an advantage the first few times through the batting order which al-
lows the Penn offense more t i me to t a ke cont rol a nd build momentum. The versatility of Penn’s pitching staff is sure to be key to their success in Ivy play this year. As Glenn gets more and more starts under his belt, he has the potential to reach a few more records before his time at Penn is up. But f rom now on, those records will come at the beginning of the game, and not the end.

thought it would take two good recruiting classes to turn the program around. We thought that we would definitely make the NCAA tournament and be a top forty team.” With their season on the line, hope may be on the horizon for the Quakers as some of their injured may be returning to battle against Princeton this Saturday. But nothing is set in stone, so the Red and Blue have no choice but to take it day by day.

THE BUZZ: THREE UP THREE DOWN
Penn baseball hits the road vs. Villanova BY STEVEN TYDINGS From The Daily Pennsylvanian’s sports blog, THE BUZZ A f t e r P e n n b a s e b a l l ’s matchup at Villanova was postponed on March 19, the Quakers will play the resch edul ed gam e with th e Wildcats on Thursday. With just two games until the start of Ivy play, the Red and Blue (5-10) look to maintain the momentum they picked up af te r d e feating Lafayet te three times last weekend. Meanwhile, Villanova (7-14) lost two of three in a series with Northwestern. Without further ado, here is a three up, three down for the Thursday matchup. Three Up Jake Cousins — The freshman starting pitcher is the probable pitcher for Penn on Thursday and would be making his second career start. In four appearances this year, Cousins has a 1.23 earned run average, allowing just 10 baserunners in seven and onethird innings pitched. In his first start against Delaware State on March 11, he was able to work himself out of early trouble and should be

more steady five appearances into his career. Gary Tesch — The sophomore outfielder was impressive last weekend against the Leopards, garnering accolades as the Iv y League Player of the Week. He had six hits, including a home run, and stole two bases. Expect Tesch to keep up the offense while playing well in center field for the Red and Blue. Michael Vilardo — After the sophomore second baseman had just three hits in t hree ga mes to st a r t last weekend, he exploded to the tune of four hits in four at-bats in the latter half of Penn’s road doubleheader vs. Lafayette. Vilardo came around to score four times as well, which helped the Quakers score 11 runs, their secondbest offensive output of the year. After a strong freshman year, this may be a sign that Sichao Wang/Staff Photographer Vilardo is avoiding a sophomore slump. Sophomore centerfielder Gary Tesch had a great weekend vs. Lafayette, notching six hits which included a home run. That performance earned him Ivy League Three Down Player of the Week and he’ll look to continue that success vs. the Wildcats.

had to keep the ears covered all day.” Even after earning accolade upon accolade, Borden remains grounded. “There’s always a new day, and you can’t look at things in a negative light,” she said. Borden says that staying positive was the biggest lesson she learned from last year’s NCAA Tournament experience. The Red and Blue had a tumultuous postseason experience in 2013. In their first game at College Station, the Quakers fell to Texas A&M, 12-0.
“I got beat up pretty badly,” she recalled. “But you just have to learn to let things go.” The next day the Quakers came back and almost pulled off a victory over Arizona, before falling 3-2, a feat Borden considers “crazy.” In the game against the Wildcats, Borden pitched with ferocity, allowing only two runs and issuing no walks. This season, though, Borden knows that her role on the team has changed. “Now that the team is so young, it is even more impor-
tant for the people that were sophomores last year to play more of a leader role,” she said. Borden is patient, knowing that it will take time to develop the same chemistry as the 2013 squad. On the diamond she misses the backup from her biggest role models, shortstop Steph Caso C’13 and secondbaseman Sam Erosa C’13. “I always felt so comfortable out on the field with them,” Borden said. “[The freshmen] are all so raw and so athletic. Right now it doesn’t seem like we’re too good, but we are talented.
“It’ll get there.” In the meantime, the team is looking ahead to the Ivy League season, which opens with a doubleheader against Yale at Penn Park on Friday. Borden is taking an unorthodox approach to preparing for Friday’s game. “For Ivy League games I write a quote on a piece of tape and wrap it around my hand.... It’s a special thing,” she said. When asked what the quote is for the Yale games, Borden admitted, “I don’t know yet. “But I have a list going.”

It was the second highest total in Ivy history. She a l so aver a ge d 1 2 . 0 points per game while leading the Quakers with 8.3 rebounds per contest . A f ter beginning the year on the bench, she started Pennâ€™s last 15 games with the Red and Blue going 13-2. The man who placed her in the starting lineup also received some recognition for Pennâ€™s solid season, as McLaughlin became Pennâ€™s first coach to take home Big 5 Coach of the Year honors. The Quakers had the best season in McLaughlinâ€™s time at Penn, overtaking Princeton for the Ivy title. In each of McLaughlinâ€™s five seasons at Penn, the Quakers have improved their win total, going from two wins in 2009-10 to 22 wins this year.

Resetting the NCAA Tournament field
After a rash of upsets, DP Sports takes a look at who has the edge in the Sweet Sixteen BY IAN WENIK Sports Editor With the Sweet Sixteen getting underway tonight, our DP Sports bracket currently sits tied for 7th out of 483 entries in the DP’s Bracket Challenge. What did we get right, and what did we miss? Most importantly, what’s going to happen next? What we got right Stephen F. Austin and Harvard pulling first-round upsets We don’t want to say we told you so, but, well, we told you so. The Lumberjacks’ halfcourt offense — with the exception of a 10-minute run in the second half — was able to find tons of open looks against VCU, while Harvard saw five different players score at least nine points against Cincinnati in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the 61-57 final score. A deep run for Baylor The Bears took Creighton to the woodshed on Sunday by beating the Jays at their own game, sinking 11 of 18 threepoint attempts for a ridiculous 61.1 percent shooting clip in an 85-55 win. Baylor’s guard combo of Brady Heslip and Kenny Chery (both Canadian, by the way) is absolutely deadly both inside and out. Wisconsin is on notice. What we got wrong Misplaced faith in New Mexico Poor Cameron Bairstow. All along, we thought he was going to demolish Kansas inside with Joel Embiid out. True, the Jayhawks were finished in the first weekend, but it was at the hands of Stanford instead. Bairstow dropped 24 against the Cardinal in the round of 64, but he never had a shot after his teammates combined to shoot 9-for-34 from
the floor. Duke in the Elite Eight DPOSTM may have six of its predicted Elite Eight teams left in the tournament, but our bracket was dealt a huge blow — just like everyone else’s — when the Blue Devils decided to no-show in the round of 64 against Mercer. As the Bears bullied their way inside behind Daniel Coursey, our editors cringed a little bit more with the sound of each Duke pull-up three hitting iron. What’s next: South Region Florida (1) over UCLA (4) The Bruins’ duo of Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson has been as good as advertised so far, but so have the Gators. After facing a little bit of adversity against Albany, Florida asserted itself inside, with imposing center Patric Young recording four blocks in a dominant 81-65 win over Pitt in the third round. UCLA simply doesn’t have anyone that can seriously challenge him inside. The top overall seed keeps on rolling. Stanford (10) over Dayton (11) Raise your hand if you saw THIS matchup coming. Didn’t think so. As other commentators have pointed out, Dayton has made a Sweet Sixteen run not only due to strong interior play, but also due to the fact that its opponents missed an alarming number of three-point shots in the second and third rounds. A little bit of regression to the mean, and the lowest remaining seed in the tournament goes home. Elite Eight Florida (1) over Stanford (10) Stanford can give Florida some serious trouble on the low block. Center Stefan Nastic has been versatile on the defensive end, while 6-foot-10 power forward Dwight Powell willed his team to an upset win over Kansas with 15 points and seven boards. The Gators will win this one from deep, as guard Michael Frazier II finally
gets on track. What’s next: East Region Michigan State (4) over Virginia (1) The Spartans advanced past Delaware in the round of 64 thanks to 41 points from forward Adreian Payne, before staving off an upset bid from Harvard through the outside shooting of Travis Trice and Branden Dawson. Michigan State can beat you any way it wants to, and Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett can’t possibly gameplan for everything that’s going to get thrown at his team. Iowa State (3) over UConn (7) Forget the clock issues at the end of Sunday’s game against North Carolina. Iowa State guard DeAndre Kane firmly established himself as a March hero with his game-winning layup. It’s easy to see Kane and forward Melvin Ejim getting hot one more time to will the Cyclones to the Elite Eight, even with key forward Georges Niang out with a broken foot. Elite Eight Michigan State (4) over Iowa State (3) But Iowa State can live without Niang for only so long. And against the long and athletic Spartans, his absence will ultimately prove to be fatal to the Cyclones’ dreams. Payne should have a field day on the glass as a once even matchup becomes lopsided, even with Michigan State’s normal fourguard offensive set pieces creating size disadvantages at other spots on the floor. What’s next: West Region Arizona (1) over San Diego State (4) Arizona has looked even better than expected, thoroughly demolishing Gonzaga by 23 points on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Spartans are lucky to even be here after barely escaping New Mexico State in overtime in the round of 64. SDSU is almost totally reliant on guard Xavier Thames at this point, and that’s a bad track record to

bring in against a team that can score from all spots on the floor. Wisconsin (2) over Baylor (6) Baylor may have guards, but Wisconsin has forwards in bunches. Look for big men Frank K aminsk y and Sam Dekker to keep pounding the glass (and step out to take the occasional three) as Bo Ryan’s ballclub moves on and comes one step closer to shedding its reputation as a squad that consistently comes up small against lower seeds when it matters most. Elite Eight Arizona (1) over Wisconsin (2) But Kaminsky and Dekker haven’t come across anyone quite like Aaron Gordon, who is making his case for most outstanding player of the tournament with each offensive outburst. He dropped 18 points against Gonzaga, hitting eight of his 10 shots from the field. The Badgers won’t have an answer for that kind of offensive efficiency. What’s next: Midwest Region Louisville (4) over Kentucky (8) After the Wildcats stunned undefeated Wichita State, pundits were quick to proclaim that they had just seen the “real” Kentucky. But does anyone know what the “real” version of this inconsistent band of freshmen even is? Don’t be tempted to pick the upset in this one, as the defending champs will move on comfortably. Michigan (2) over Tennessee (11) The Vols sure didn’t look gassed after playing three games in six days, easily dispatching national darling Mercer. The run ends here, though, as the Wolverines will survive and advance behind a huge game from forward Jordan Morgan, who has weathered fan criticism all year. Elite Eight Louisville (4) over Michigan (2) Expect this rematch of last

Iowa State forward Melvin Ejim has played a huge role in his team’s run to the Sweet Sixteen, scoring a combined 36 points in two tournament games. year’s title game to have a similar finish. Morgan can’t keep up his hot streak forever, and he’ll get terrorized on the low block by Cardinals forward Montrezl Harrell, who has come dangerously close to picking up technical fouls on the court for his raw emotion. He’ll get one more chance to yell in the Final Four. Final Four Florida (1) over Michigan State (4) The Gators are possibly the only team in the country that can handle the Spartans right now. Young is big and physical enough to neutralize Payne on post-ups and drives, and Frazier, along with point guard Scottie Wilbekin, will be able to generate just enough of a perimeter game to send Tom Izzo’s squad home empty-handed. Louisville (4) over Arizona (1)
The difference-maker in this contest will likely be Louisville’s championship experience. Gordon, for all of his talents, is only a freshman. In fact, he can only count one senior among his Wildcats teammates. Rick Pitino’s squad has seen it all before — and embraces it. Led by Russ Smith, the Cardinals will advance to the brink of a second consecutive championship. National Championship Florida (1) over Louisville (4) But they will go no further. Florida is peaking at just the right time, having won 28 games in a row heading into the Sweet Sixteen. In a tournament where one bad night spells the end to your dream, the Gators seem positively incapable of collapsing now. Our original title prediction stands.
