    The Institute Pedagogy: Actively Learning Together

    “Our students are drawn here because of our mission, because they are looking to engage with the world and solve problems. So it’s exciting—it’s exciting because I feel like I, too, am being pressed regularly to figure out what to do, and how to approach these big problems of the world.” – Professor Lyuba Zarsky (faculty)
