Congratulations to our graduating students!

Fall convocation is on Nov. 15. Whether you’re crossing the stage or attending to celebrate someone who is, we’ve got all the information you need to make the most of the big day.

Can asking questions change the world?

Is everyone truly equal under the law? Can wastewater become drinking water? Is there a better way to detect cancer? Does social media make us less civil?

Every day, our scholars tackle global challenges, make important discoveries and create new knowledge. It all starts with a big question — one that challenges status quo, defies conventional wisdom, confronts the obvious.

Because without asking questions, we can’t move our world forward.
