We are eager to collaborate on new projects and initiatives. You can get involved by:

  • suggesting an event, speaker, topic, or collaboration 
  • co-sponsoring an event or talk 
  • organizing a conference or symposium with us 
  • suggesting a source of external funding, and helping us develop and submit an application 
  • letting us know of an event you are organizing that would be of interest to our community 
  • joining our mailing list If you are teaching a class that you think would connect to our Investigations series, please let us know. 

We work with a number of instructors each semester to create events and workshops that would be of interest to students. Contact us at
