Draw extraordinary computational scholars and leaders to Chicago: Faculty coappointments
Computation is a fundamental tool of intellectual inquiry. By significantly expanding its small but excellent faculty focused on computation, the University can spark transformative impact. These new faculty members will provide the intellectual capital needed to seize the opportunities presented by computation, creating a dynamic, interdisciplinary community whose excellence will be self-sustaining.
Your support will grow this faculty. It will foster their interactions, through the Computation Institute, with scholars, problems, and ideas from across the University. And it will produce foundational advances in computation and computation-enabled science.
