How We Work

Seizing new opportunities to unlock human potential through learning

The many intersecting challenges in learning require novel interdisciplinary approaches and a new model of a research university. Because there is no silver bullet to complex social issues, we are building a portfolio of work anchored in community connections. We believe collaboration between diverse communities of researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, students, and others will create better and more effective solutions and help move ideas forward, faster.
