Florida. We are a community of teachers and scholars united in the belief that broadly
educated people are the basis of a just, free and prosperous society. By focusing
on the big questions facing all of humanity, we prepare students for successful personal
and professional lives. By conducting innovative, interdisciplinary research and scholarship,
we advance knowledge in ways that prepare us to address vexing social problems and
