Announcement from Penn Dining

Students -

 

Please note as we approach the end of the year our hours will be changing. We encourage you to check both our website as well as our Social Media for the most up to date information.

 

One change for this week we ask you to take note of is that Falk Dining will shift to being open continuously from 11:30am-4pm. We encourage students to utilize 2 swipes during that period of time to get both lunch and dinner which will be available during those hours.

 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but Starbucks in 1920 Commons will continue to be closed until further notice.

 

Complimentary Starbucks drip coffee and treats will be available inside Gourmet Grocer from 11am-6pm.

 

Please email us at dining@upenn.edu if you have any questions.

 

Sincerely -

 

Penn Dining

 

CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program

Applications due date extended to May 30, 2021

The fundamental objective of the CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is to increase the national pipeline of undergraduate students who complete Ph.D. programs in core fields that engage with both the theoretical and practical underpinnings of multimedia research, interrogating the politics of representation and power at play in visual scholarship and media, as well as harnessing the potential of visual methods to democratize the production of knowledge in academic spaces. Through a three-year pipeline, the program aims to increase the presence of individuals from underrepresented groups pursuing Ph.D. programs on college and university faculties, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities.

 

The CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is open to students with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities with media including students who, though not from traditionally underrepresented groups, have otherwise demonstrated a commitment to the goals of the program. CAMRA Mellon applicants must be highly motivated towards gaining a Ph.D. and teaching at the university level.

Current Recycling Program

During the summer, Penn Dining and Bon Appetit worked closely with the team at Penn Sustainability to determine what packaging would best deliver our meals to you as well as being recyclable.

 

We understand that properly disposing of these items takes a little time and can be confusing. We encourage you to review the image to the left to help you decide how to sort your waste.

 

Please direct any questions to dining@upenn.edu.
