Executive Programs, Residential Programs

As you might have seen in our 2023 – 2024 CSIS Program Outlook, there are many different options to learn and engage with the Center for Social Impact Strategy this year. On this page, we want to highlight all of our information sessions that are coming up this year to help you gain more insight and clarity into the type of programs we offer. As you’ll see below, there are three sections: Choosing a CSIS Program, Executive Program in Social Impact Strategy (SIS), and Executive Program in Digital Media for Social Impact (DMSI). All sessions will share a little bit about Penn Social Impact Accelerator (PSIA), but we’ll hold dedicated sessions about PSIA in early 2024.

All sessions will be meeting-style sessions held on Zoom. Just listen in, or feel free to engage in conversation with the team and your potential classmates. Read on for dates and registration links provided below!

This page has been edited since its originally posting to include recorded videos, updated information and adjustments to dates.

 

Choosing a CSIS Program

The information sessions in Choosing a CSIS Program provides broad overviews of everything we have to offer in the Center, including DMSI, SIS, and PSIA.

Some sessions will focus on roles, sectors, or impact areas that align closely, and in potentially surprising ways, with our curriculum, or in response to specific requests we’ve received for information sessions targeted to a particular population in the social impact space. If you would like us to present an information session specifically for your group of 10 or more, please contact us at admissions@csis.upenn.edu for scheduling.
