The core mission of the School of Science is to advance the interdisciplinary frontiers of science
through leadership in research and education. We will accomplish our mission by maximizing
existing synergies with the other four Schools while simultaneously focusing on only the most
impactful areas of research in basic and applied science. Through a strategy of Institute-wide
cooperation, we will also develop innovative pedagogies that will provide students with a rich
educational experience that will motivate and enable them to seek the highest levels of
intellectual achievement and personal growth. We will use our knowledge, discoveries, and
inventions to change the world.
