Penn Spectrum Weekend brings together alumni for dialogue centered on issues of cultural identity.

The conference focuses on issues pertinent to the Black, Latinx, Native, Asian, and LGBTQ alumni and student communities.

 Be sure to stop by at Sweeten Alumni House (3533 Locust Walk) to check out artwork by James Dupree GFA 77.

The 2016 Presidential Election and Diverse Communities. What would President Trump or President Clinton do for you? Will Immigration reform come about?
