• Academics at SU
    Southwestern University

Associate Professor of Mathematics Dr. Fumiko Futamura recently sat down to chat with SU seniors Mauro Garcia and JT Marek to during a Facebook Live event.

Their conversation covered a range of topics including Southwestern’s innovative curriculum and its intentional focus on making connections across different subjects and ideas. This interdisciplinary focus, which we call Paideia, encompasses all aspects of academics and student life here at Southwestern.

Dr. Futamura, who focuses on projective geometry and perspective drawing, discussed how she creates opportunities and encourages her students to make connections both in the classroom and also through research. JT and Maura talk about the importance of these “Paideia moments,” and how the philosophy is woven throughout their entire Southwestern Experience.
