Penn Faculty and Staff Personal Climate Pledge

The Penn Faculty and Staff Climate Pledge (PennFacultyClimatePledge.Org) was developed by “CIRCE”, the Faculty Senate Select Committee on the Institutional Response to the Climate Emergency, and has been endorsed by the Faculty Senate

The pledge commits signatories to five simple actions, from reducing their household carbon footprint to reviewing their retirement accounts. While the University has made significant commitments to an institutional carbon action plan, CIRCE’s research shows that faculty and staff residences and retirement accounts produce about as many carbon emissions as the main campus and the endowment. 

We hope to create momentum for reducing individual carbon footprints and to demonstrate to the staff’s and faculty’s visible engagement with issues around climate change and sustainability.

The University of Pennsylvania Class of 1923 Ice Skating Rink has a rich history. In 1968, a group called the “Friends of Pennsylvania Hockey” and the Class of 1923, led by Howard Butcher III, decided to donate the 3.2 million dollar facility to the University of Pennsylvania. At the time of the donation, it was the largest class gift in Penn’s history.  Howard Butcher III, Dr. John Cleveland, and Bill R. Wise led the development of the class donation. The rink was dedicated on October 24, 1970 and opened to serve Penn and neighboring skating community.

The facility operates as the second largest collegiate arena in Pennsylvania. It was operated by the University of Pennsylvania Athletic department from 1972-1980 and Comcast-Spectacor from 1981-1983.  Penn’s University of Pennsylvania’s Division of  Business Services assumed oversight in 1983 and remains in that role. Throughout this time, the facility has hosted: Penn Varsity and Club ice hockey, Drexel University’s ice hockey club, Villanova’s and St Joseph’s ice hockey, Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia Freeze women’s ice hockey, Philadelphia Bulldogs professional roller hockey, Scott Hamilton’s Champions on Ice, Disney on Ice, multiple concerts, trade shows (including the Penn Computer Connection’s Back-to-School sale), and the first three years of PennMOVES, an annual sale of items students did not take with them when they left campus at the end of the academic year.

In 2019, the Penn Ice Rink celebrated the completion of an $8.2 million renovation project that supported numerous upgrades and improvements to the facility, which has enhanced the overall experience, extended the rink’s hours for near year-round operation, and provided long-term operational sustainability, as well as allow Snider Hockey to expand the delivery of its nationally-acclaimed youth enrichment services to a wider audience.

Wolf Humanities Center

The Wolf Humanities Center is Penn’s main hub for interdisciplinary humanities research and public programming. Established in 2017 by a gift from Noelle and Dick Wolf, the center grew out of the Penn Humanities Forum, founded in 1999. The Wolf Center’s goals are to demonstrate how vital the humanities are to the life of the mind and the health of society, and how fundamentally connected they are with many areas of urgent inquiry in medicine, law, business, and the sciences. At the same time, we are mindful that this contemporary relevance rests in large part on the humanities’ commitment to understanding the distant past and to pursuing projects of deep and arduous research which may bear no obvious connection to the here and now. The humanities as we define them are broad and inclusive, and we take pride at the Wolf Center in fostering a lively diversity of perspectives, approaches, and constituencies. 

Whether you are a member of the Penn faculty or staff, an undergraduate or graduate student, a local resident interested in history, art, and culture, or a visitor via the internet, the Wolf Humanities Center welcomes you to join us in considering our common stake in the “thinking arts.”
