A Year of Creativity and Bold Thinking Through Bass Connections

The 2021-2022 school year marked a series of welcome returns for the 1,200 students, faculty, staff and community partners who participated in Bass Connections. Our 61 year-long project teams resumed their in-person work on campus, many teams participated in their first fieldwork since 2019 and we were once again able gather together in Penn Pavilion to celebrate the year through our annual Fortin Foundation Bass Connections Showcase.

We have relished the opportunity to reunite our interdisciplinary community and also sought to build on the creativity that faculty, students and staff have displayed over the last two years. Explore the Bass Connections 2021-2022 Annual Report to get a glimpse into the exciting and innovative work of Bass Connections project teams, summer programs and courses over the past year.
