Institute for 21st Century Scholarship

The creation of an Institute for 21st Century Scholarship will allow scholars from across departments and disciplines to research and collaborate on a variety of projects.

The Institute will be a place to bring leading minds together to explore and solve the most pressing issues of our time through an interdisciplinary lens.  It will be a place to bridge basic research with applied research.  It will facilitate the collaborative work of graduate students and faculty from across the college and university by offering seed money for grant and project development.  Funds will be available to develop new courses, outreach programs, lectures and seminars, and help interdisciplinary groups to evolve and become self-sustaining.
