(Math)
Co-Host of PBS Infinite Series
“I find that the ideas of math are hidden behind a dense fog of formalities and technical jargon. Much of my transition process has been (and still is!) learning how to fight through this fog in order to clearly see the ideas, concepts, and notions which lie beneath."
Give, For the Public Good
We at the GC have a collective commitment to advanced scholarship that serves the public good. Our students and faculty are taking on pressing global challenges and pursuing new possibilities in virtually every field — from immigration and inequality to biomedicine and data science. We are preparing alumni who will change the world.

 

This is vital work, which depends on your generosity.
