I’m constantly inspired by our faculty’s relentless pursuit of realistic answers and sustainable solutions for the myriad of tough dilemmas facing our world today. Whether it’s ensuring students receive the financial support they need to complete their degrees, studying opioid use to develop the best treatments, or working to stop the scourge of gun violence in our communities, our researchers have a keen ability for identifying the most pressing issues and using their skills to make significant strides toward bettering our city, our nation and our world.

Please take a moment to meet a few of these faculty members, whom I am honored and privileged to introduce, and learn more about their work.
