“A great University, true to its name, must encompass a universe of backgrounds and experiences, ideas and ideologies, theories and perspectives.” These are the opening words of Penn’s Diversity Action Plan, which evokes a vision of “one university: a wide-ranging, ever-changing community that draws its strength from a multitude of races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, historical traditions, ages, religions, disabilities, veteran statuses, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic backgrounds.”

The Penn Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowships are a key element of this commitment to achieve eminence through diversity, as expressed in both the original Action Plan and its recent progress report:
