Give to University Life, shaping the Penn student experience

The Division of the Vice Provost for University Life (“University Life”) fosters the memorable activities, leadership opportunities, and supportive communities that help Penn students learn, grow, and reach their fullest potential.

Gifts to University Life’s core priorities impact the life of every student by supporting the diverse academic, personal, professional, civic, and cultural experiences that define students’ life at Penn.

The University Life Academic, Career, & Wellness Fund assists students in achieving excellence in the classroom and in pursuit of professional goals.

The University Life College Access & Retention Fund promotes efforts to diversity higher education by identifying and supporting undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with pressing emergency needs or educational opportunities they cannot otherwise fund.

The University Life Civic & Cultural Engagement Fund supports students engaging in the free interchange of ideas; demographic, socioeconomic, and intellectual diversity; and active engagement in the greater Philadelphia, state, national, and international communities.

The University Life General Fund gives University Life leadership unrestricted flexibility to address pressing needs, meet unexpected challenges, and pursue new initiatives that benefit Penn students.

The University Life Leadership Development Fund supports programs across the division that help students grow personally and intellectually, and develop the integral skills to navigate an increasingly diverse and complex world.
