Goals and Objectives
This branch promotes awareness of consumer issues that are specific to Penn students such as housing rental, identity theft, credit cards, loans, etc. Campus Initiatives works with the international student community at Penn to help introduce them to common problems with which American students may be familiar but may not exist in the home countries of international students. This department also collaborates with other Penn organizations and clubs to host presentations, workshops, and speakers to present information in a fun or innovative manner which engages students. For example, Campus Initiatives may host guest speakers such as legislators, individuals from government agencies, or professors doing work on issues related to consumer protection to begin a dialogue on-campus regarding this important topic.
