The Wonder of Why
At LSA, we wonder. We wonder why we are here. We ask how the universe works, and how we organize societies. We all wonder—but the great professors and students use curiosity as a catalyst to find answers to the biggest questions. Wonder begins with a simple “why” and leads to discovery that advances science and society while shaping our world for the better.

Today, LSA is meeting this moment by tackling the world’s most daunting problems, reinvigorating liberal arts education and research, and making it more equitable and relevant than ever.”
