Interdisciplinary Caucuses

The Office of the Provost and the Office of Research Administration and Development hosted interdisciplinary caucuses focused on Environment, Health and STEM Education. 

These caucuses were identified as the major areas of interest and activity based on input from faculty who responded to the Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity survey that was conducted this past academic year.

The purpose of these caucuses was to provide a forum for faculty with common interests to meet with colleagues to discuss collaborative projects and new opportunities.
