Inspiring meaningful inclusive engaged reflective connected learning

What is the Tang Institute?

The Tang Institute exists to support student learning. We fund faculty fellowships—often in interdisciplinary teams—to learn about and engage with central questions in education today. We also connect our learning with other educational leaders, sharing and growing our best ideas with local and global communities.
