Research, Scholarship & Creativity


Students not only learn from top researchers, they also work alongside them, expanding their understanding of the world and making it a better place.

Our faculty, along with students, seek answers to pressing questions about climate change, cancer immunotherapy, social justice, and cybersecurity, among many other issues central to our time. The collaborative, high-impact solution of real-world problems is integral to our teacher-scholar model, enabling students’ hands-on engagement in the joys and challenges of discovery and creation.
