“New Initiatives in Interdisciplinary Education & Research at Temple University”
The power of a comprehensive research university lies in the vast array of educational offerings at all levels. The sheer size of such an institution, however, presents logistical roadblocks to interdisciplinary collaboration across different Colleges. This includes both undergraduate degree offerings and graduate research opportunities. In Spring 2023, the Provost charged a group of faculty with finding ways to lower these logistical barriers and fostering interdisciplinary education and enhancing interdisciplinary research. This “Interdisciplinary Collaboration Committee” recently completed its work and submitted a detailed report to the Provost.
