"Collaborations are ever more necessary because the issues that confront us require approaches from many perspectives. We need to develop research methods that may lead to the emergence of new areas of inquiry. Unique among research institutions, the Neubauer Collegium aims to integrate humanistic thinking into even the most advanced quantitative research. By taking the broad range of our thinking into account and facilitating constructive conversations, we can begin to rethink our possibilities."
