First-Year Preceptorials: Saturday, August 27
11am – 2pm
Second-Year Preceptorials: Monday, August 29
11am – 2pm
Penn Preceptorials are one-time, not-for-credit sessions that introduce students to the intellectual and cultural resources of the University. For faculty and teaching staff, they can be an opportunity to share passions related to their teaching and research interests. Particularly during orientation, they also serve as a way for campus centers, programs, and other resources to showcase the cultural, social, and intellectual richness of our shared community. On Penn’s YouTube channel, you can see some archived Preceptorials from previous years.
For New Student Orientation (NSO) and Second-Year Orientation (SYO) 2022, as we return to a fully in-person experience, we are particularly looking to create a vibrant series of on-campus offerings for First- and Second-Year students. Submissions for preceptorials are now closed.
Our office also coordinates academic year Preceptorials in Fall and Spring semesters. These are largely topic-based and can also include multiple sessions and potentially involve off-campus sites and events. For information about these, please contact Andrea Naughton (email@example.com).
We thank you in advance for helping us enrich the New Student Orientation experience.
