Our inaugural Citizen Speaks event brought five city university presidents together for the first time.
The rare and lively discussion included talk about the integral role these colleges play in shaping the lives of cities, and how their fostering of innovation is making Philadelphia an even greater place to live.
Panelists included Temple University President Richard Englert; Community College of Philadelphia’s Donald Generals; Drexel University’s John Fry; Jefferson University and President and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health Dr. Stephen Klasko; and Penn President Amy Gutmann.
