Dear members of the Penn community,
I write to share that President Liz Magill has voluntarily tendered her resignation as President of the University of Pennsylvania. She will remain a tenured faculty member at Penn Carey Law.
On behalf of the entire Penn community, I want to thank President Magill for her service to the University as President and wish her well.
We will be in touch in the coming days to share plans for interim leadership of Penn. President Magill has agreed to stay on until an interim president is appointed.
President Magill shared the following statement, which I include here:
“It has been my privilege to serve as President of this remarkable institution. It has been an honor to work with our faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community members to advance Penn’s vital missions.”
Scott L. Bok
Chair, Penn Board of Trustees
