Academic Excellence

At Conn, your studies are built around a problem you want to solve. Since few problems fit into a tidy box, you'll learn how to de-compartmentalize your knowledge and experiences, and make richer, more meaningful connections in all that you're learning and doing. It's challenging, unpredictable, eye-opening—and exhilarating. 

You'll work alongside students and faculty who have the same broad interests as you, but who have embraced different—maybe even radically different—perspectives. You'll navigate and negotiate difference. You'll become at ease with the unscripted. And you'll develop the capacity to see beyond surface distractions and get to the "why" of a problem.
