Research partnerships open up new fields of possibility
It can start with a conversation in a hallway and lead to the furthest limits of the earth. Work undertaken jointly invites new perspectives, wider exploration and deeper understanding. In this issue, we explore scholarly partnerships that are based on mutual respect, enthusiasm and appreciation for learning.

On the cover: This January saw Tim Flood (Geology), Nicole Bader ’11 and Kathy Licht ’92 undergo rigorous survival training on the way to their five-person research campsite in the heart of Antarctica. Flood took our cover photo while the group was learning how to safely locate and traverse the crevasses that dissect the desolate, wind-swept continent.
