Penn dates its founding to 1740, when prominent evangelist George Whitefield had the idea of building a Philadelphia charity school that would double as a house of worship for his followers. After construction was underway, however, the cost was seen to be much greater than the available resources, and the project went unfinished for a decade.
Penn has a proud tradition of intellectual rigor and boundary-breaking innovation that dates back to our founder, Benjamin Franklin. That tradition lives today through the creativity, entrepreneurship, and engagement of our faculty, students, and staff.
Thank you for sharing.
