Curiosity@Penn is a collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice and the Center for Curiosity. Through generous support from the Center, the School of Social Policy & Practice hosts programming and scholars examine the study of curiosity as an emerging academic discipline and as an essential feature of the broader social world. This partnership asks several critical questions: Where does this curiosity come from? Is it innate? Is it developed? How does it influence different fields of study?
SP2 provides an institutional home within Penn for this interdisciplinary work. Programming and original scholarship are not limited to one academic subject area but reach across the University to engage faculty from various departments and schools at Penn.
