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)

Inspired Learning in an Inspiring Location

“We’re close to Silicon Valley, we’re close to San Francisco. There are so many things that we can access from here. Both on the personal and the professional side, that makes it, to me, perfectly situated.” – (student)
