Within our learning community students interact with faculty—which includes Nobel laureates, MacArthur “Genius Grant” fellows, U.S. Professor of the Year awardees and National Medal of Science winners—who listen, question and help students refine their ideas so they develop a broad understanding of the world, strong leadership skills and an enhanced ability to think critically.

Within our eight colleges, schools and programs, are 3,800+ academic courses across 150 fields of study, enabling students to create a unique academic experience.
