We are at a pivotal moment in history.
As we emerge from the social and economic devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a triple imperative to fix the systems that are causing the climate and biodiversity crises as well as institutionalized inequities. Between the capacity to conduct cutting-edge research, the responsibility to prepare tomorrow's professionals and leaders, and the role as a neutral convening agent, Universities have a unique role to play in developing solutions to today’s most pressing global challenges. The research being done at Penn can and must be part of the solution.
