Students will address significant and pressing questions and problems that concretely confront out communities, nation, and world. Two faculty from different disciplinary perspectives will prepare students and structure their engagement in facing a representative urgent challenge using project-based learning which allows students to work in teams to examine dimensions of a problem and propose solutions.
