A Message from the Senior Vice President for Human Resources

Penn attracts people from across the region and around the globe to work and study. More than 25,000 faculty and staff help create our richly diverse and thriving community in one of Philadelphia’s most vibrant neighborhoods. While our jobs may differ, we are united by the University’s mission of research, teaching, and service. Together we celebrate our traditions and embrace innovation. We serve communities around the world, our nation, and in our city.

Like Penn’s renowned schools and centers, the Division of Human Resources is committed to serve. We offer our faculty and staff a generous total compensation package and benefits options that help you reach your personal and professional goals. Our programs and resources also help you develop your career, care for yourself and your loved ones, and plan your future.

Human Resources also partners with schools and centers to create supportive workplaces and advance their business and organizational goals.

We are excited to work with you as part of the Penn community. I encourage you to explore the many options you have to engage, develop, and contribute.
