We propose that the University of Pennsylvania look into offering a fashion-oriented program in order to cater to a more diverse array of interests that center around the business of fashion and design. We realized that Penn’s proximity to New York City and its vast financial and academic resources make Penn a prime candidate as an Ivy League university to offer courses in this particular area of study. In fact, Cornell University offers courses that educate students in fiber science and apparel design as well as fashion merchandising. By offering similar course, Penn will not only benefit current and future students and faculty, but also Penn’s reputation as a diverse and progressive institution.
