International Partners in Research

The University of Pennsylvania places a high value on, and is committed to, engagement with international partners in furtherance of our academic mission.  The open exchange of ideas among students, faculty and colleagues around the globe facilitates the advancement of human knowledge and understanding.  Global engagement, in addition to strengthening our academic community, brings talented students, scientists and engineers from around the world together for the benefit of all.

We want to clearly reiterate our commitment to international engagement and to our Asian community and will continue to work on campus and in the national dialogue to reinforce these fundamental principles.

In recognizing the importance of international engagement, the University continues to expand mechanisms to facilitate research while protecting faculty and other researchers in their international collaborations consistent with legitimate national security protections.
