To fulfill 潘’s commitment to local engagement—an important part of President Amy Gutmann’s 佩恩紧凑的2022—潘 collaborates with local communities on many bold initiatives. 潘 seeks to promote safe neighborhoods, attract 和 support area businesses, encourage homeownership, 和 improve public education. 的 Netter Center for Community Partnerships oversees a powerful array of projects 和 programs, with multiple initiatives to improve West 费城 education, including developing early childhood reading 和 math skills, raising interest in science, 和 bridging the digital divide. Other programs include Community 艺术 Partnership, which place an artist-in-residence in the West 费城 schools, supports after-school programs, 和 fund a 潘-West 费城 arts exchange called the Foundation.

In the spirit of 潘's commitment to putting knowledge to use, 许多学生, 教师, 工作人员, 和 alumni contribute time to these initiatives. A broad range of undergraduate 和 graduate Academically Based Community Service courses combine intellectual learning with active involvement.
