Task Force Mid-Year Report

​IN 2020:

Each NMH student will be able confidently to engineer solutions to important problems, and to provide scientific perspective and mathematical insight to the pursuit of any profession or form of knowledge.

HOW WE'LL GET THERE:

• NMH as a site for developing mastery
  educators
• Pilot collaborative mastery programs
• Connect integrative research and design to  
   industry and academic mentors off campus
• Mathematician/scientist in residence
• IMS director for Gilder Center
