Greenfield Intercultural Center

As a site of learning through cross cultural activism, reflection, and dialogue the GIC promotes co-curricular educational and cultural programs. The Center provides support to the United Minorities Council (UMC) and to its many constituent groups. It is also home to popular intercultural programs, such as: Programs for Awareness and Cultural Education (PACE) - a diversity education program and Alliance & Understanding (AU) - an exploration into the historic partnership between Blacks and Jews during the Civil Rights era, as well as, organizations such as the Race Dialogue Project and Natives at Penn, the latter being an organization for students interested in Native American issues.

Additionally, the GIC in collaboration with Harnwell College House, the Center for Community Partnerships and Civic House hosts a residential program called the Franklin Community that encourages students to explore democracy, civic engagement and intercultural understanding. The center also collaborates with the Office of Leadership programs to offer the Intercultural Leadership Program bringing American and International students together for cross-cultural Center collaboration.

Center staff are also available to consult and assist in designing and implementing workshops for student organizations and administrative offices on campus. If you are interested in planning an event, offering a workshop on diversity issues, or getting involved in building a culturally aware and integrated campus do not hesitate to contact us at gic@dolphin.upenn.edu.
