I’m constantly inspired by our faculty’s relentless pursuit of answers, sustainable solutions and big dreams. Beyond researchers tackling the many tough dilemmas facing our world today—like ensuring students receive the financial support they need to complete their degrees and working to stop the scourge of gun violence in our communities—others think even bigger, exploring theory that could shape the world for centuries. Whether the application comes today or years down the line, our scholars are at the forefront of their fields, guiding the national conversation and making 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.
