One of the core activities of the Provost’s Office is fostering interfaculty collaboration. The University-wide character of the office and the close relationships nurtured with the schools place the Provost and the office in a unique position to facilitate collaborations across school boundaries. When approaching a specific problem or pressing need, solutions increasingly require the combination and application of knowledge derived from myriad sources traditionally dispersed across departments at universities. The promise of interdisciplinary programs is to reintegrate knowledge for the purposes of discovery. Interdisciplinary approaches significantly impact ways of teaching, learning, and research. The desire for expanding research beyond traditional school or departmental boundaries is often in place but new organizational support may be needed to harness these synergies.
