In Conversation: Wharton Chief Advancement Officer Sam Lundquist
Sam Lundquist talks about his travels around the world with Dean Erika James, takes stock of Wharton in a pandemic-emerging world, and reflects on what Wharton’s forward-facing mission means for alumni and students.
Cooking Up Innovation in Tangen Hall
For some Wharton student entrepreneurs, food is more than a means of sustenance. At Tangen Hall’s Food Innovation Lab, students including Melissa Tovin, G’22, WG’22, have prepped new businesses. By taking advantage of the lab’s professional-grade equipment and facilities, tomorrow’s culinary innovators are whipping up fresh, ready-for-market ideas.
Invested in Wharton’s Future
Alice Yin Hung, C’90, W’90, takes to heart Wharton’s mission of contributing positively to the world. She has a long history of being in service to Wharton and the University, including as an honorary co-chair for the Wharton Global Forum held in March in Singapore. Over the years, Hung has chaired Wharton’s Executive Board for Asia, created a scholarship supporting international students, and has endowed a named President’s Distinguished Professorship for Wharton faculty. Hung said Wharton’s “can-do and never-say-die attitude gave me the confidence to make a difference in the world.”
