In 2013, the university identified five Signature Initiatives for the Rising to the Challenge campaign that span individualized health, big data, the science of learning, the future of cities, global health, and the exploration of space. Together with the Bloomberg Distinguished Professors, the Signature Initiatives leverage and strengthen our divisional expertise to create innovative interdisciplinary solutions for the most critical global issues.
