Community Partners

Negotiations for the development of a host site for students in an agency may be initiated by either the agency host site or the School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2).

Collaborative Initiatives between SP2’s master’s degree programs work to identify host sites with the capacity to offer learning opportunities for all three kinds of students, when possible, in an academic year. These sites may also become specialized HUBs for professional education for students and agency staff, working across disciplines with students, sharing resources and fostering collaboration among sites doing similar work, and identifying challenges and advocacy needs. If interested in being part of a SP2 Professional Education HUB, follow up with any of the Program contacts below.

Cover of Slow Burn The Hidden Costs of a Warming World by SP2's R. Jisung Park

SP2’s R. Jisung Park publishes “Slow Burn: The Hidden Costs of a Warming World” 

In “Slow Burn: The Hidden Costs of a Warming World,” Dr. R. Jisung Park, an assistant professor at Penn’s School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2), encourages us to view climate change through a different lens: one that focuses less on the possibility of mass climate extinction in a theoretical future, and more on the everyday implications of climate change here and now.
