Big ideas. Great teachers. Vital questions.

Kaplan Scholars on the steps of University Hall

They refine their critical reading and writing skills; confront the works of great authors and artists; attend performances; and examine how artists, thinkers, and ordinary citizens contribute to the central role played by the humanities in our world.
