Today鈥檚 problems are too complex to be solved by one doctor, one engineer, one economist, or just one teacher. No matter each individual鈥檚 brilliance, today鈥檚 problems demand collaboration. On our 330-acre campus, collaboration thrives. Researchers can literally walk out of their building and be sitting with an interdisciplinary partner in minutes.
Our trans-institutional programs are taking big chances鈥攁nd are willing to fail鈥攂ecause only by doing so will we get beyond what we know and find what we need.
We believe this kind of collaboration will dramatically change the world, and we believe Vanderbilt is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of that change.
