The Wharton Work/Life Integration Project was founded in 1991 to:
- Understand how students and alumni think about and value their interests in life: work, education, family, society, and the private self (mind, body, and spirit).
- Encourage members of the Wharton community to reflect on their central life interests and to explore how those interests are influenced by their Wharton experience, how they differ for various demographic groups, and how they change over time.
- Have an impact on corporate and social policy about the relationship between work and the rest of life through research and conferences that connect scholars, students, advocates, and organizations in the private and public sectors.
- Contribute to the sciences of organizational psychology and adult development.
- Create materials for courses on leadership, careers, human resources, and ethics.
- Inform Wharton faculty and administration about student and alumni attitudes.
