Introduction, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

“Our goal is to look at problems that aren't typically solved by any one discipline. If you look at the big, interesting problems — climate change and others — no one discipline owns these. These are things that have to be approached by people who come from a variety of disciplines.”

Earlhamites Collaborate on Research Expedition in Iceland

A research group of nine students and three faculty members from Earlham gathered on the ashy black gravel at the base of Sólheimajökull, a glacial finger that extends 15 kilometers from Mýrdalsjökull, an ice cap in southern Iceland. They were eager to start their climb, but first had to learn to walk.
