At the University of Rochester, we are known as the place where the world’s best scholars, scientists, and musicians push themselves to new levels of excellence. Research and the arts enrich the experience of students in all disciplines, inspiring them to learn and grow outside of their traditional studies. Here at Rochester, creativity and discovery are encouraged, but does our broader society understand and appreciate their value? This is just one of the questions we asked our esteemed panel.
