More Professors Who Bring the Outside World In

We believe that a comprehensive education from a varied group of faculty helps students prepare for the real world. With this in mind, we will build a 21st-century Professor of the Practice program to ensure that students learn from top professionals in their fields so, upon graduation, they have both a network of support from practitioners as well as a clear view of the realities in their aspiring careers.
