PennDesign has been named the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design
Last week, Penn President Amy Gutmann and Dean and Paley Professor Fritz Steiner announced that the University was naming the School of Design for award-winning designer and Wharton alumnus Stuart Weitzman in recognition of his lifetime commitment and support of Penn.
“This is my way of thanking the University of Pennsylvania for the education that was the foundation of my long and incredibly enjoyable career in design,” says Weitzman. “It is my privilege to support new scholarships, and to invest in the overall academic mission of the School, including the advanced technologies and systems so essential to the future of design.”
This milestone in the School’s ongoing Lead by Design capital campaign will bring new opportunities to entering and continuing students beginning this spring.
