TPC announcement

September 16, 2022

As shared earlier this semester, we have been exploring opportunities to partner with or transfer ownership of the Philadelphia Center (TPC) to a new institutional partner to maintain its rich 55-year history of experiential learning. Conversations will continue with various interested parties through the end of September.

TPC will not accept student applications for the spring 2023 semester. In anticipation of this pause, TPC staffing has been reduced and, where possible, invited to join Albion College’s faculty and staff.

Dr. Gretchen Mielke, executive director of the Philadelphia Center, and TPC staff have worked diligently to ensure undergraduate participants have a rich experience through a wide range of internship opportunities and coursework. All of us at Albion College are grateful to them for their hard work through a difficult time.

We will provide updates as new information becomes available.
