Student Moves Swiftly Through Pipeline for Promise Program All the Way to Penn

Abdul-Hakim Muhammad As-Salafee has traveled a non-traditional path from working in the Philadelphia Prison System to the University of Pennsylvania.

“Going through Pipeline for Promise was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made,” As-Salafee says of the program, which is administered through the School of Social Policy & Practice. “They have given me a makeover. It was a boost to another level of maturity, and it built my level of self-esteem and confidence.”
