OUR VALUES

EXPLORATION

Be insatiably curious.

In journeying outward, we explore inward, and by looking inward, we discover the world around us. Each scale is fundamentally connected, and we learn how systems work by exploring those connections.

OUR COMMITMENT TO EXPLORATION

Driven by wonder and collaboration, we do incredible research that leads to big discovery and impact. We believe in the power of global exploration that inspires new perspectives and thinking. And as a top-20 public research institution, we encourage undergraduate and graduate students to work on life-changing research with faculty. By the time they graduate, they've helped lead missions to different destinations in the solar system or assisted in the development of the quantum internet.
