Campus resources

Dynamics students are part of Penn’s vibrant intellectual community, with access to a wide range of academic resources.

Program Council

The Program Council is a student organization who meet regularly to advise and help govern Dynamics student activities. The Council’s mission is to support the social, educational, and career development of Dynamics students beyond the classroom. Event topics include professional and career development and networking, education and training, and social-education.

The Council supports the following ongoing projects:

  • Bookend Class Meetings: The first and last class meetings for all Dynamics classes are held at the University Faculty Club. These meetings provide the opportunity to share a meal and conversation with classmates and instructors.
  • Social and Professional Networking: Events held throughout the year enable students, faculty, alumni and guests to gather for conversation formally or informally on topics relevant to the Dynamics community.
  • Lecture Series: During the academic year, academic and practice leaders with expertise from a broad range of topics are invited to speak to our community.

Organizational Dynamics resources via Canvas

We know that our students lead busy lives, and we’ve developed resources that are available when they need them most. In addition to the many events and meetings that bring us together in person, we also encourage current students to access Canvas, our online student community. (Please note that only current students have access to the online community.)
