NEW YORK -- The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Paideia Program at the University of Pennsylvania is kicking off a series of 13 interdisciplinary discussion on “Racism and Anti-Racism in Contemporary America” with a conversation on “Income and Wealth Disparities.”

The event, to be held on Monday, October 26 at 5 p.m. EDT, is free and open to the public with advance registration. The series is part of Penn’s Year of Civic Engagement.

In March 2019, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) announced a $6 million grant to the University of Pennsylvania to imagine a new paradigm for its project of educating students as whole people and citizens. The result, drawing inspiration from ancient Greece and the concept of “paideia,” which indicated the rearing and education of the ideal citizen, is the SNF Paideia Program.
