Who organizes the day’s events?
The President’s Office invited interested faculty, staff, and students to create a program that would allow all campus members to take a look at issues that impact our ability to build community and achieve a sense of belonging.
Who will be running the day’s program?
A faculty-student-staff volunteer planning committee meets throughout the year to develop ideas and reach out to the community members to participate.
The vast majority of the sessions will be organized by faculty, students, and/ or staff.
How do I sign up for sessions?
Registration for the 2018 Community Day of Learning is not yet open.
Where will I find out about the locations of the sessions?

Will all staff members be able to attend?

What if I have a class at Haverford, Swarthmore or Penn?

The Blue Bus and the Tri-Co van will run on normal schedules.
What about assignments: Will faculty recognize that students will be spending a significant portion of the day participating in the program?
Faculty will be asked to be aware of this important day of community learning in setting deadlines.
What if I am not on the meal plan, or am a graduate student, or am a staff or faculty member: What do I do about lunch?

What if I am late and miss the opening session?
After 10 a.m., schedules, nametags and dining passes will be available at the Campus Center Information Desk on the main floor.
