What is Discovery

The Discovery Program provides the intellectual framework for students in any major.  It represents the faculty's collective belief in what constitutes and contributes to essential knowledge of the world.  Together, students and faculty attempt to understand fully and use ethically that knowledge, both in the present and as a reservoir from which to draw in the future.  These intellectual skills, knowledge, and ethical grounding will help prepare students to contribute to the creation of a more sustainable, healthy, just, and prosperous world.
