The Penn Preservation Student Association (PPSA) is a student-led organization that represents students in the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. The purpose of the PPSA is to advocate on behalf of students’ interests, meaningfully engage with faculty, and foster a sense of community among students. It does this by holding regular meetings, bringing speakers to campus, and organizing events. The PPSA also strives to represent students' opinions and concerns to faculty and administrators through regular communication. It has three main focus areas: curriculum development and faculty relations; career planning and professional development; and social events and outreach.

The PPSA consists of three elected representatives from each class year and strives to reflect the diversity of student’s interests and backgrounds. The current PPSA representatives for academic year 2021-2022 are: Arden Jordan (MSHP'23), Caitlin Livesey (MSHP'22), Ali Cavicchio (MSHP'22), and Dan Mangano (MSHP'23).
