After eighteen years of service, President Amy Gutmann bid farewell to the Penn community today. After being nominated by President Biden in July and confirmed by the United States Senate on Feb. 8, 2022, she will shortly depart for Berlin, where she will serve as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Germany.
At her farewell party, students lined up to take photos with Gutmann, performing arts groups paid her tribute, and Quaker gave her one last hug. With live music, food, and a lot of laughter, here's a look into Gutmann's final goodbye to the Penn community this afternoon.
