Faculty

Our faculty are pioneers. They are a highly diverse and unconventional team of scholars who find ways to work across disciplines to tackle some of society’s greatest challenges. Their perspective is changing the way we look at urban education in Philadelphia, civil unrest in Mali and safe drinking water in India.
