Goldstone Research Unit

 
The Goldstone Research Unit, now ended, was made possible by Steven F. Goldstone, former chairman of Nabisco Group Holdings and Penn graduate (C '67) in Political Science. The Goldstone Fund, created from his gift to the Philosophy, Political Science and Economics program at Penn, supports endowed postdoctoral fellowships, underwrites visiting lecturers and conferences, aids PPE majors conducting research for their Capstone seminars, and provides funds for SPICE, the PPE undergraduate journal.
