Access the changemaker profile for Whitney Soule here. Whitney is Vice Provost and Dean of Admissions at the University of Pennsylvania, a member of the American Talent Initiative.

This interview is part of our "Changemaker Profile" series, a set of interviews with main points of contact across the membership to learn how they advance ATI goals in their work and what their institutions are doing to advance the aspirational commitments they made through the Accelerating Opportunity campaign. We are beginning this series by interviewing the Main Point of Contact Advisory Committee members, a diverse group of MPOCs providing strategic input and counsel on how ATI staff can best support their ATI-related work.
