What is The Dean Difference?
The Dean Difference isn't any one thing. It's not a program or a
professor. It's not a single class or a club. It's the way our
academics support networks and community overlap, interweave and
magnify each other. Our difference unites us. It's our secret
formula. It's the nucleus around which we orbit. It isn't one
thing, it's everything
