Who we are

The Penn Vegan Society is an academic and professional society that researches and promotes discourse around plant-based diets and bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. Our three key areas of inquiry and expertise are human health, environmental stewardship, and bioethics. We host high-profile speakers and conferences, maintain a web resource and blog for those looking to learn more about scholarly veganism, and work closely with Penn Dining and area restaurants to increase and improve vegan offerings available to those looking to make a dietary transition.
