Our doors are open to Faculty

Faculty play a major role in our mission. Within our House communities, they encourage intellectual inquiry, and promote spirited discussions and interactions. Penn Current recently interviewed the Faculty Director of New College House, Prof. Cam Grey, about his experiences in nearly a decade of living as a faculty mentor in the College Houses.
