Mission Statement

The School of Interdisciplinary Studies provides a framework for supporting creative, boundary-crossing inquiry among students and faculty across the liberal arts and social sciences.  To this end the School facilitates collaboration among existing multidisciplinary programs and provides guidance and support as new programs are envisioned and established.  Our aim is to give students an interdisciplinary training across the breadth of the liberal arts that will equip them to analyze and engage with the local, national and international aspects of our globalized world.  The participating programs ask why and who societies develop and whether their political, economic, cultural and social relations and activities promote participation, justice, freedom, equality, and democracy.  Through problem focused thinking, we encourage students to become engaged citizens and professionals.
