It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
Professors in Discovery have a common mission: to help students from all departments and programs understand better the organization of knowledge in the modern world. Faculty are responsible not only to colleagues and students in our own disciplines, but also to others learning and teaching in the Program from across the university's variegated intellectual terrain.
Students, too, have a common mission: to claim their own educations with curiosity, open mindedness, and discipline. They are responsible for active and tangible engagement in the intellectual life of the university, in classrooms, on campus, and within the wider community. Students are partners in the learning process. Together, students and faculty seek to understand the world as it is and as it might be and to take their places as independent thinkers in the world they will help to shape. Ours is by definition a collaborative venture, and represents the promise of a university-wide intellectual community.
