The Office of Global Affairs was created to develop and implement programs that maintain the international stature of the School of Dental Medicine, strengthen the international outlook of its faculty, students and staff, increase the school’s involvement in global oral health issues, and expand its collaboration with dental schools and other institutions worldwide.
Our vision is to position the School of Dental Medicine as an international center for education, clinical practice, and research in oral health. The School’s global vision complements that of the University’ as expressed in the Penn Compact, “to attract a student body as diverse in class background as it is in geography, gender, race, and religion.” The School also aims to engage locally and globally by sharing knowledge with and learning from the University’s neighbors – in the surrounding community and around the world.
