Over 35 Years of Building Intercultural Communities at Penn
The Albert M. Greenfield Intercultural Center is Penn’s resource for enhancing student’s intercultural knowledge, competency, and leadership through our programs, advising, and advocacy. We do this by offering experiential courses for credit, signature intercultural programs, and other services related to diversity and intercultural education.
We are a home away from home. Bring your whole self here.
Known fondly as the “GIC,” the Greenfield Intercultural Center is more of a home than an institution. We provide a safe space for intercultural dialogue and interaction with students, faculty, staff and visitors from around the globe.
Come hungry, because like any family, we like to eat together. Sharing meals is a vital part of GIC’s mission. We are passionate about serving the Penn community as an advocate of intercultural awareness, understanding, and appreciation and by building up student leaders.
Beyond breaking bread and hosting our annual Wellness Day, GIC staff mentor student groups and sponsor their events. We run training workshops, facilitate courses, support program development , and collaborate with a diverse collection of campus partners on special events.
