Message from the Dean

The past year marked a turning point for the School of Arts and Sciences. We celebrated a number of important milestones, among them the renovation of the undergraduate Chemistry labs, a facilities project that has sparked a transformation of the chemistry curriculum. The expanded Music Building completed its first full year of operation and continued to win recognition for its design, including designation as Penn’s first LEED Gold academic building. A gift from alumnus James Joo-Jin Kim, W’59, G’61, Gr’63, is ushering our Korean Studies program into a new era— one in which an understanding and appreciation of Korea is woven into the fabric of Penn’s academic life.

research and education—and intellectual excellence across Penn—relies substantially upon our ability to recruit and retain the very best faculty. I am delighted that we have recruited nine outstanding scholars who joined us in September: they include specialists in India and China, areas of knowledge critical to our future. I am even more proud of our successes in retaining many of our outstanding faculty who were being recruited by other schools. This is a testament to what I have long believed: that the School of Arts and Sciences is a place where the best teacher-scholars choose to stay and to make their careers. The stability that the School has achieved reflects our institutional commitment to collaboration and strategic investment. By taking the time to develop shared academic goals across departments, we can devote resources to areas with maximum impact across the School. Our natural science departments are ready to engage in a new approach to faculty searches, targeting critical new research areas that cross disciplinary boundaries. Through this approach, our Mathematics and Biology departments may, for example, jointly identify a computational biologist who can advance intellectual agendas in both departments. This approach has long been a part of our institutional DNA: the difference is we are now formalizing processes to support such collaborative thinking.

Our past year’s accomplishments also attest to SAS’s position at the heart of Penn. Among our cross-school milestones are the shared appointment of two new Penn Integrates Knowledge professors in SAS and Wharton: I. George Heyman University Professor Barbara Mellers, a globally recognized expert on judgment and decision-making, and Leonore Annenberg University Professor Philip Tetlock, an awardwinning scholar of political psychology and organizational behavior. The groundbreaking for the Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology represents a joint accomplishment of SAS and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. And our long-time friend and supporter P. Roy Vagelos, C’50, Hon’99, and his wife, Diana, parents, recently made a gift that is making it possible for SAS and SEAS to launch the dual-degree undergraduate Vagelos Integrated Program in Energy Research.

To ensure excellence without growth, accountability is also vital. This ethic has been reflected in the past year through a charge to all of our undergraduate programs to define specific goals for their majors, specifying the knowledge and skills that their graduates should obtain. The next step is to see how the curriculum and course offerings ensure that students receive an education that supports the defined goals. A similar initiative is underway in the faculty committees overseeing the various components of the College’s general education curriculum. The faculty also engaged in three-year curriculum planning, to make sure that we consistently deliver the courses our students need. We thus never stop making sure that our students are getting the very best possible education, while we also mind the budget.

We celebrate these major accomplishments, many of which are highlighted in the pages that follow. But in my mind what made the past year a true turning point for the School is the story that lies behind these milestones. We have by and large met the extraordinary challenges presented by the nation’s economy and have emerged stronger than ever. Colleagues from across the School have worked creatively to address the neverending imperative to focus on our core priorities, while the School is not growing. With stability, collaboration, strategic investment, accountability, and innovation as our watchwords, we have charted a path to sustained accomplishment in education and the advancement of knowledge.

Finally, we continue to find ways to improve through innovation. The College’s just-launched Integrated Studies Program—which provides a new path for highly motivated, talented freshmen to explore the broad territory of the arts and sciences—is a wonderful example of our commitment to exploring novel approaches to education. This innovative spirit inspires all that we do. While we can never assume that hard times are behind us, we have shown that we can always get better at the things that count—even in more challenging times. I take great pride in the hard work and impressive accomplishments of the SAS community and I hope you will enjoy this overview of highlights from the past year.

In the past year we achieved stability with respect to two critical resources: our finances and our faculty. Through close management of our expenses and the achievement of results that met or exceeded our goals for key revenue categories, we have closed FY 2011 in a position of financial strength. This strong performance has allowed us to build reserves that will give us the capacity to respond to unexpected events and to invest strategically in key new initiatives. In an era of resource constraints, I take special pride in all we have done to ensure the strength of our faculty. Our reputation for excellence in 1

Shaping Minds


Through a wide range of courses and majors, the College provides essential instruction in the liberal arts to all of the University’s undergraduates, who leave Penn with the knowledge, skills and inclination to contribute to and thrive in a rapidly changing world. In the Graduate Division, our doctoral programs develop the scholars who will lead the pursuit of knowledge in the next generation and maintain Penn’s stature as a world-class research university. The Professional and Continuing Education division extends a Penn Arts and Sciences education to a broad range of lifelong learners including non-traditional undergraduates and working professionals. To all of our exceptional students, the School of Arts and Sciences offers learning experiences that shape minds for independent, creative thinking; leadership in their chosen fields; and thoughtful, engaged citizenship within their community, nation and world.


State of the School Report 2010-11

he School of Arts and Sciences is home to roughly half of Penn’s undergraduate, graduate and professional student body.

Shaping Minds

The undergraduate experience at the College is notable for many things: a broad range of academic options, opportunities for interdisciplinary study, flexibility, and strong advising. The abundant opportunities to expand learning outside of the classroom, to engage in active research programs, and to be mentored by world-class scholars make undergraduate study at Penn Arts and Sciences truly distinctive. Michael Sulewski, C’11, worked with a team of scientists in the lab of Brush Family Professor of Biology Ted Abel on cuttingedge research that explores how to increase gene activity central to long-term memory formation—research that ultimately may help to identify treatments for psychiatric, neurological and neurodegenerative disorders. A Biological Basis of Behavior major, Sulewski first became involved with Professor Abel’s group as a sophomore and eventually had the opportunity to co-author a paper published in Nature Neuroscience. Now a first-year student at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, Sulewski summarizes the impact of his experiences in the lab as “pretty eye-opening. You can work on something for weeks or months, and it sometimes just doesn’t work at all…. And when things do work, when you realize you have touched on new knowledge, something no one else has done before, it’s incredibly rewarding.”

Tommy Leonardi, C’89

Undergrads in the lab

Psychology and linguistics major Rachel Romeo, C’11, has a similar story to tell of the transformative impact of engagement in research. A class in American Sign Language and her research assistant job at Penn’s Infant Language Center inspired her to think about the problem of language acquisition in children with hearing impairments. Her advisor, Associate Professor of Psychology and Infant Language Center director Daniel Swingley, helped her design a study to assess whether chronic ear infections can disrupt language learning during the critical first months of life, and if those disruptions have prolonged effects.

“When you realize you have touched on new knowledge, something no one else has done before, it’s incredibly rewarding.” Michael Sulewski, C’11 Biological Basis of Behavior

Romeo’s path to finding her passion was paved by her advisor, by access to resources like the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, by the scholarship she received that made it possible to attend Penn and by funding received by the University’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships. But she also credits her liberal arts experience for giving her the freedom to explore. “I started out thinking I’d be a math major and I had never even heard of linguistics,” she says. “I now want to pursue an academic research career devoted to helping eliminate childhood language disorders.”


Classroom knowledge meets real-world experience in washington

The program helps students find Washington internships, connects them with alumni, and runs a variety of networking events. Dr. Martinez finds that it has been “especially rewarding to see the first students who I helped find internships years ago at our events as alumni who are succeeding in Washington and are excited about helping current students find their way. That encourages me to continue making the program even better.” Martinez, the program director and a doctoral alumna of Penn’s Graduate School of Education, is also a lecturer at Fels and the author of three books including Washington Internships: How to Get Them and Use Them to Launch Your Public Policy Career.

the next generation of scholars: accomplishment across disciplines


University of Pennsylvania School of Arts & Sciences

The goal of supporting students along the path to becoming an educated person is not new, but to deliver the most engaging, relevant education the College is committed to innovation. Beginning with the Class of 2015, the College’s Integrated Studies Program (ISP) is offering a unique liberal arts experience for College students in Penn’s Benjamin Franklin Scholars program. The ISP curriculum is designed to survey the broad territory of the arts and sciences, beginning with two innovative freshman courses organized around the great ideas that continue to drive our understanding of the world and the human place in it. A residentially based program, ISP also includes weekly course discussions on broad-ranging topics within Riepe College House, where all the freshmen ISP scholars are housed.

The School’s doctoral programs attract talented scholars from around the world who seek to work closely with our distinguished faculty as they learn their disciplines, learn to teach, and prepare to become the intellectual leaders of the next generation. Through their courses, teaching experiences and research pursuits, students in the School of Arts and Sciences Graduate Division engage with their world and expand the boundaries of knowledge across disciplines.

Matthew Leake

The College’s leadership in innovative, interdisciplinary undergraduate education has most recently been advanced through a major gift from longtime SAS supporters P. Roy, C’50, Hon’99, and Diana Vagelos, parents, to establish the Vagelos Integrated Program in Energy Research. The goal of the new dual-degree program—involving SAS and the School of Engineering and Applied Science—is to prepare top students with an interest in energy science and technology to become leaders in the field. It is expected that graduates of the program will pursue advanced degrees in energy science and engineering.

Eric Trager’s fieldwork brought him to the center of the turbulent Arab spring. Trager, a doctoral student in Political Science, is the Ira Weiner Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and an associate scholar at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. Last spring, Trager was in Cairo for a project focusing on Egyptian opposition parties when the anti-Mubarak revolts broke out. Since then Trager has provided commentary and analysis regarding the situation in Egypt on campus as well as for The New Republic, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs and numerous radio programs. Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World graduate student Margaret M. Andrews demonstrated Penn’s consistent strength in the humanities when she became the winner of the 2011-2012 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome. This is the fourth consecutive year in which an SAS student has won the prize—one of the most competitive in the humanities. Andrews’ research involves the physical and social evolution of the ancient Subura in Rome and examines how the topographical development of the region both shaped and was shaped by social, political and economic dynamics. Also among SAS’s emerging academic stars is Physics and Astronomy graduate student Amitai Bin-Nun. In collaboration with Assistant Professor Justin Khoury and Professor Ravi K. Sheth, Bin-Nun has been exploring how the enormous gravitational force of a black hole can distort the light from objects around it. His work on a technique for measuring this bending of light—called gravitational lensing—has already been published, and he has further proposed that gravitational lensing around a supermassive black hole that is believed to lie at the center of the Milky Way might provide a way to search for extra dimensions.

Shaping Minds

The School of Arts and Sciences’ professional and continuing education programs provide a point of access for “non-traditional” students. Through options ranging from a parttime undergraduate program, to post-baccalaureate programs that prepare students for graduate study, to language programs that help international students achieve proficiency in their English communication skills, to master’s degree programs that advance skills and knowledge for a range of professionals, the School’s PCE programs meet the ongoing education needs of today’s working population.

Math synergies The best tools are the ones that can do more than one job: in its efforts to meet the needs of non-traditional students, the School’s division of Professional and Continuing Education often comes up with tools that improve teaching and learning across SAS. The Arts and Sciences Learning Commons is one such tool. Originally developed to provide nontraditional students with a robust online course platform, the Commons is now used increasingly as a supplement to regular College courses. A newer “tool” is Math 101. The course has long been available for PCE students who need additional math preparation—students who have been away from school for several years, or who come from school systems where math instruction tops out with algebra, or who for any other reason are not ready for calculus. Through close collaboration involving PCE staff, Professor and Chair of Mathematics Jerry Kazdan, and advising staff from the College of Arts and Sciences, a new version of Math 101 has been launched that takes advantage of the Learning Commons platform. Online delivery means that students can get the math preparation they need without coming to campus. It does not, however, sacrifice faculty contact: weekly live sessions with the instructor are supported by the software and built into the course. In addition to benefiting PCE’s part-time undergraduates, Math 101 is an attractive option for newly admitted students to the College of Arts and Sciences who need the additional preparation. Students can take it in the summer and arrive on campus fully prepared for regular Math courses. Math 101 also offers promise as a tool to increase college readiness among Philadelphia high school students, who have the option to take this and other PCE classes for free.

Nevertheless, Vivian Futran notes that, “When people think of the greatest threats to humanity, water doesn’t usually enter their minds.” Futran is a 2011 graduate of SAS’s Master of Environmental Studies program—a program that allowed her to combine her concern for environmental issues, particularly world water supply, with her commitment to a career in policy. While an MES student, Futran also worked as a program manager for the Philadelphia Global Water Initiative, a role that engaged her in sustainability events and activities extending from the Penn campus to the United Nations. Through fellowship support from Penn’s Middle East Center, she also spent a summer in Israel studying Hebrew and expanding her engagement in environmental action abroad. Today, Futran is pursuing her Ph.D . in the environmental field at Israel’s Ben Gurion University.

Ideas that just a few years ago were being explored primarily by storytellers in movies and genre writing are now being translated into new scientific knowledge by investigators across the natural and physical sciences at SAS. Breakthroughs in nanomaterials are providing a glimpse of an exciting new era. Professor of Physics and Astronomy A.T. Charlie Johnson led a team in the development of a consistent and costeffective method for making graphene, the atomic-scale material that has promising applications in a variety of fields and was the subject of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. The high-quality graphene that Johnson’s team created was just a single atom thick over 95 percent of its area—and they were able to produce it using readily available materials and manufacturing processes that can be scaled up to industrial levels. Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy Marija Drndic and her team are making great strides in biological applications of nanomaterials. Using state-of-the-art nanopores developed in her lab, Drndic and her associates have been able to isolate a specific type of microRNA from cells—a major finding because, although microRNA has a potentially important therapeutic role, detecting these biomolecules has, until now, been difficult. This work is demonstrating the great potential of her lab’s nanopores for use in a range of biophysical applications. In brain and behavior research, investigators like Assistant Professor of Psychology Joseph Kable are using imaging techniques to develop an increasingly refined sense of how the brain makes us who we are. Kable, who specializes in the neurological and psychological processes involved in decision making, recently published findings confirming the specific region of the brain necessary for making decisions about economic value.

Richard Perry University Professor Adrian Raine uses the techniques of neuroscience to explore causes of crime. His research has identified differences in the brain structures of psychopaths and in studies spanning over 20 years he has also found a correlation between a lack of conditioning to fear punishment as a toddler and criminal behavior as an adult. The implications of this work were highlighted in a newsmaking panel discussion at last year’s meeting of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science.

Martha Farah, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Natural Sciences in the Department of Psychology and Director of Penn’s Center for Neuroscience and Society, contributed to the debate on the use of medications such as Adderall and Ritalin—so-called “smart drugs”—to enhance focus and memory in people with no medical diagnosis. Farah and her colleagues found that subjects believed they performed better on various cognitive tasks when given Adderall, but that their performance was in fact no better than when they were given placebos.

The Art and Science of Sustainability


Arthur Hobson Quinn Professor of Anthropology Gregory Urban has written about how the goals of a culture contribute to the problem of global warming, noting that if climate change is fueled by a cultural orientation toward material wealth acquisition, then a shift in this dominant goal can contribute to the solution. His argument reflects his ongoing research on American and European corporations and concepts of corporate citizenship.

In June 2011, an international research team led by Associate Professor of Earth and Environmental Science and director of the Sea Level Research Laboratory Benjamin Horton reported that the rate of sea-level rise along the U.S. Atlantic coast is greater now than at any time in the past 2,000 years. In addition they found a consistent link between changes in global mean surface temperature and sea level. This past summer more than a dozen students, faculty and staff from the Department of Biology worked in Northern Mongolia as part of an international initiative to document the combined ecological and evolutionary consequences of global climate change and grazing pressures there. The program, headed by professors Peter Petraitis and Brenda Casper, is a collaboration between Penn, the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, and several institutions in Mongolia. Because of its latitude, elevation, and distance from the moderating influence of a large body of water, Mongolia is expected to experience some of the world’s largest temperature increases in coming years.

Professor of Chemistry Andrew Rappe and his colleagues are working to develop new methods and materials to facilitate solar energy harvesting and conversion to chemical fuels. Rappe is also co-director of Pennergy: the Penn Center for Energy Innovation, a cross-school center that seeks to bring together world-class researchers to solve scientific and technological problems enabling the efficient use of current energy sources, the practical use of more sustainable energy, and conversion of energy to different forms.

SAS faculty are contributing to the sustainability dialogue through multiple paths of inquiry, from work that documents the impact of global warming to exploration of solutions to environmental problems.


understanding upheaval

While the mass Egyptian protests took much of the world by surprise, Associate Professor of History Eve Troutt Powell helped to frame those events in the context of decades of grievances against the Mubarak regime, including economic stagnation and human rights abuses. A cultural historian who specializes in the modern Middle East, Troutt Powell is the author of A Different Shade of Colonialism: Egypt, Great Britain and the Mastery of the Sudan. Her doctoral advisee Marie Grace Brown has been researching the role of women in the Sudanese nation-building process and has commented on the new government of Southern Sudan and the challenges that exist for women in this new country. In Political Science, doctoral student Eric Trager has been a leading observer on the developments in Egypt (see p. 7). In addition Ian Lustick, Bess W. Heyman Professor of Political Science, has been a frequent commentator in the media on developments in Syria as well as on Mubarak’s fall. An expert in comparative, international and Middle Eastern politics, Lustick’s ongoing research includes work on computer-assisted modeling for the social sciences, with particular application to the problem of political violence. A more literary consideration of Arab life came from Firoozeh Kashani-Sabet, the Robert I. Williams Term Professor of History and director of the School’s Middle East Center. Her debut novel, Martyrdom Street, chronicles the intertwining lives of three women in the years following the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the ensuing Iran-Iraq War. A fictional account, the novel offers a compelling view of the complexity of Iranian society.

The Positive Psychology Center has continued in its engagement with the U.S. Army to provide resilience training for combat troops. This program is an extension of the work of Zellerbach Family Professor of Psychology and director of the Positive Psychology Center Martin E.P. Seligman, an expert on learned helplessness and depression and a leader in the field of Positive Psychology—the study of positive emotion, character traits, and institutions. The goal of the Army Resiliency Training Program is to reduce problems among combat troops and increase the number of people who improve and grow personally after surviving trauma. Programs are held as many as seven times every month in Army bases around the world, as well as in Philadelphia. To date, more than 6,000 soldiers have participated in the training. The School’s Fels Institute of Government published “Vacant Property Reclamation through Strategic Investment”—a report on efforts of a local organization to revitalize a Philadelphia neighborhood that experienced at 20 percent drop in population during the 1990s. The area has recently realized reduced crime rates and reduced housing vacancies, as well as an increase in new working households. By documenting this transformation Fels has provided a case study on how neighborhood groups can team up with local government to encourage reinvestment and strengthen community identity.


It is not at all uncommon for service activities to evolve naturally from research engagement. Jennifer Kyker, who just completed her Ph.D. in ethnomusicology, pursued research on a popular Zimbabwean musician who uses song to address controversial social issues. Her frequent trips to Zimbabwe gave her a first-hand understanding of the impact of the AIDS epidemic on communities there and inspired her to found a non-profit organization, Tariro, dedicated to educating young women, with a focus on orphaned teenage girls, to reduce their risk of contracting the disease.

University of Pennsylvania School of Arts & Sciences

As the nations of the East rise on the world stage, the School of Arts and Sciences is strengthening its engagement in scholarship on Asia.

Victor Mair

The School’s Center for the Advanced Study of India expanded its study of economic gains made by India’s Dalit class. Dalits, who comprise about one-sixth of India’s population, have historically occupied the bottom tier of the complex social hierarchy that constitutes the caste system. The research will help address one of the major challenges facing contemporary India: how to extend the benefits of its economic growth and development to marginalized social groups. Scholarship and teaching on Korea is positioned for dramatic expansion as a result of a new agreement between Penn and Seoul National University that encourages research collaborations as well as faculty and student exchanges. Eugene Y. Park, the Korea Foundation Associate Professor in History and director of Korean Studies in SAS, played a significant role in laying the groundwork for this relationship and was among the Penn speakers featured in Korea last spring following President Gutmann’s and SNU President Yeon-Cheon


Oh’s announcement of the agreement. In addition, a $6 million gift from Trustee emeritus James Joo-Jin Kim, W'59, G'61, Gr'63, and an anonymous gift of $1.5 million have strengthened the newly renamed James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies, a program that is distinguished by a broad focus on issues in contemporary Korea, as well as Korean history and culture. The work of noted Sinologist Victor Mair, Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations, was highlighted last year in an acclaimed exhibition at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, “Secrets of the Silk Road.” Mair, who served as a consultant and authored the exhibition’s catalog, has long studied many of the artifacts that were on display, particularly China’s famed Tarim mummies—seen by many as evidence of early Western contact with the East.


How modern constitutional democracies reconcile their structures of citizenship to accommodate—or trump—racial and ethnic identities was the focus last year of a series of research projects and events sponsored by the Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship and Constitutionalism. The program, which receives major support from the Mellon Foundation, engages undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and visiting speakers and scholars. Rogers M. Smith, the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Political Science, chairs the program and is an active participant: his work last year included opinion pieces on the birthright citizenship debate, where he proposed that cultural and historic factors argue for easing legal paths to citizenship for Mexicans.

As our nation entered the 150th anniversary year of the start of the Civil War, Professor of History Stephanie McCurry collected honors for her recent work Confederate Reckoning: Power and Politics in the Civil War South. This book reframes historical debates about the Confederacy and the Civil War and brings into focus the previously unexamined role of poor women and slaves—and in doing so, shows how the Confederacy was inherently unsustainable.

Kaja Silverman, the Katherine Stein Sachs CW’69 and Keith L. Sachs W’67 Professor of Art History, received the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Distinguished Achievement Award. Considered the highest honor bestowed in the humanities, the award recognizes and supports Silverman’s work as a visual theorist. Her studies encompass film, photography, art, psychoanalysis, literature, and feminist theory, and her most recent book, Flesh of My Flesh, cemented her stature as one of the most gifted literary and cultural critics of our time.

For Jennifer Egan, C’85, last April 18 might have been a typical day, except for one event: the announcement that her fourth novel, A Visit from the Goon Squad, had just earned her the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Fiction by an American Author. In its citation, the Pulitzer jury called Egan’s novel “an inventive investigation of growing up and growing old in the digital age, displaying a big-hearted curiosity about cultural change at warp speed.” The book centers on the lives of an aging former punk rocker and record executive and the passionate, troubled young woman who works for him. Their pasts are revealed in intimate detail, as their lives intersect with a host of characters over many years in locations ranging from New York to Naples.

“Goon Squad” is not the first of Egan’s works to win high praise. In 2001, her novel Look at Me was nominated for the National Book Award and her 2006 novel The Keep quickly became a bestseller. Earlier this year, “Goon Squad” won the National Book Critics Circle Prize. While Kelly Writers House did not yet exist to encourage Egan’s early development as an undergraduate writer, she found a circle of influential mentors within the English department. In an interview for the Pennsylvania Gazette (“Surprises Are Always the Best,” July/August 2011), she gives particular credit to Romulus Linney, who taught playwriting and fiction from 1982 to 1995, as well as writing instructor Diana Cavallo, CW’53. Today, Egan continues to be a part of the Penn writing community, sharing her work and insights with students and alumni through Kelly Writers House events—and most likely, through future appearances on course syllabuses, at Penn and beyond.

“On the night before classes started way back in September of 1976, my mom made the daunting trek from Hill to ButcherSpeakman in the Quad to meet up with some former high school classmates. At the end of the night, my mom was asked what she thought of one particular freshman boy. She replied, “Mike’s really funny, but he’s not the type of guy you’d ever want to marry.” And that’s the story of how my parents met. Needless to say, during my first night on campus 31 years later, expectations were high.”

Excerpted from the address delivered by Joseph Yellin, C’11, at the College graduation ceremony on May 15, 2011. Yellin is now a student in Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine.

ALUMNI NOBELS: A LEGACY CONTINUES For the second year in a row, a School of Arts and Sciences alumnus has been recognized with science’s highest honor. Ei-ichi Negishi, Gr’63, was awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with two other scientists—just one year after George Smith, C’55 was recognized with the Nobel in Physics. Negishi is the seventh

Nobel laureate to be associated with the Department of Chemistry, an illustrious group that includes three graduate and two undergraduate alumni. The Herbert C. Brown Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Purdue University and a Penn Chemistry Ph.D., Negishi was recognized for

developing an innovative method for using the metal palladium to link carbon molecules into larger, more complex structures.  The method is now used in research and industry worldwide to create substances with purposes as diverse as fighting AIDS and cancer, protecting crops, contributing to DNA


sequencing and illuminating the ultra-thin monitors that have revolutionized so many endeavors.  

State of the School Report 2010-11

In the years following graduation, College alumni frequently consolidate their career paths through additional education. According to surveys conducted by the University’s Career Services office, 72 percent of alumni from the Class of 1999 had either completed or were enrolled in an advanced degree program within 10 years of graduation. In addition, many alumni earn multiple advanced degrees.

University of Pennsylvania School of Arts & Sciences

The School achieved strong results in its financial performance for FY 2011, meeting or exceeding targets for key categories of revenues and expenses. The School is closer to achieving sustainable faculty and staff size and we continue to fill critical open positions. The School continues to contain cost through close management of expenses and through the enhancement, where possible, of existing revenue sources and development of new revenue opportunities. Fundraising for the year exceeded $49 million. Total revenue for sponsored research increased by 6.5 percent over FY 2010. In addition, the overall financial performance of the division of Professional and Continuing Education, other professional master’s programs, and additional entrepreneurial activities surpassed budgetary expectations. As a result of these accomplishments, the School was able to set aside reserves to seed new programs and entrepreneurial activities, as well as to prepare to meet future facilities renovation and maintenance needs and to provide quality of life improvements for faculty, staff and students. At the same time, the School sustained its momentum in important areas of research and education and recruiting faculty of the highest quality. We are actively engaged in improving our existing space and in creating new space to meet the needs of the School and the University. In FY 2011, the School completed Phase II of the Undergraduate Chemistry Laboratories, began the High Bay project to facilitate the construction of astronomical instruments, became fully engaged in the construction of the Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology and contributed to the College Hall West Wing renovations.

Fiscal Year 2011

The School will continue to maintain strong management of its resources throughout FY 2012 in order to be able to fund its highest priorities. The economy continues to provide a challenging environment in which to achieve our financial goals. Undergraduate tuition rates are expected to grow at modest levels in the next several years; at the same time, the School is mindful of the growing financial aid needs of its students—a situation that affects SAS disproportionately relative to Penn’s other undergraduate divisions. With the continued support of the University, along with the School’s Board of Overseers and other friends, SAS will maintain its financial health, fueling achievement of the goals and priorities of arts and sciences at Penn.

Powering Transformation: Support for Penn Arts & Sciences

University of Pennsylvania School of Arts & Sciences

Campaign Update: Making History in the Arts and Sciences By the close of FY 2011, the School of Arts and Sciences had raised $358.6 million toward its total Making History Campaign goal of $500 million. The School continued to make progress in a number of key areas including faculty and graduate student support, undergraduate programs and critical facilities projects including the Neural and Behavioral Sciences Building. Even more important than the dollars raised to date is the impact that is already being felt across the School. In the course of the Campaign, 29 endowed faculty chairs have been established –an increase of 25 percent in the number of endowed positions. Nearly 200 scholarships have been established for students in the College and $23.5 million have been contributed in support of graduate students. The Music Building and the newly renovated undergraduate Chemistry

Amount Received Goal All figures current as of June 30, 2011.

Laboratories are providing students and faculty with state-of-the-art spaces for teaching and learning. Naming gifts have strengthened critical academic areas including the Barbara and Edward Netter Center for Community Partnerships, the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies and the James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies. As we move into FY 2012, completion of funding for the Neural and Behavioral Sciences Building and support for undergraduate financial aid remain our most pressing needs. We look to our alumni, parents and friends to help us achieve success in these crucial areas and to continue to strengthen SAS as the foundation for excellence at Penn.
