How We Work

Accelerating discoveries and solutions for the most pressing challenges facing learners

The many intersecting challenges in learning as we know it require novel interdisciplinary approaches and a new model of a research university. Because there is no silver bullet approach to complex social issues, we take a portfolio approach anchored in community connections. Our model provides opportunities for funding, support, and community-building, to accelerate solutions to our biggest challenges in education.
