Collaboration, Interdisciplinary and Cross-Faculty Initiatives

We recognize the value of, and will continue to support, individual scholarship within disciplines. Facilitating collaborative, synergistic research, however, is a focal goal of this SRP, as is interdisciplinarity. Increasingly, both individual and team researchers from across disciplines are working together to solve the complex and diverse problems faced by society today. Interdisciplinarity increasingly fuels both individual and team research activity. ?Collaboration, both disciplinary and interdisciplinary, is sustained by a diverse and fertile range of methodological strategies, as well as institutional structures for knowledge and resource sharing and dialogue.?

Worldwide, such institutes have been created to nurture research and intellectual engagement at the highest levels. Some are characterized by the community of scholars drawn to the institute and have no formal affiliation with a particular school, and others are oriented towards interdisciplinary research in advanced areas of institutional strength. Regardless, each serves as a beacon for research excellence, building an international reputation, providing a window and door to the world, and establishing their respective institutions as a destination for the world’s best researchers and scholars.
