In fall 2013, the University of Pennsylvania will host Penn Spectrum, the University's second weekend-long alumni conference devoted entirely to celebrating diversity. Through this conference, sponsored by the Office of the President and Penn Alumni Relations, Penn seeks to engage diverse undergraduate and graduate alumni from all walks of life, and to provide a new opportunity for them to reconnect with one another and their alma mater in a meaningful way. Though any interested alumni may attend, Penn Spectrum will focus on programs of interest to Asian, Black, Latino, Native American, and LGBT communities, the populations served by the existing volunteer coalition of the Penn Alumni Diversity Alliance. This has made Penn the first among its peers to bring together alumni of color and LGBT alumni at one conference to affirm not only individual group affinity and identity, but also cross-cultural collaboration and understanding. Alumni leaders are working in conjunction with Penn Alumni's Multicultural Outreach team to craft an agenda to include numerous intellectual, social, and professional activities. The conference will include welcome remarks from President Amy Gutmann, topical panel discussions, student group performances with alumni, affinity-based social events, and a Saturday evening gala.
