Interdisciplinary Issues Faculty Committee

2012-13 / 2013-14 Faculty Senate ad hoc Committee

Final Report by the Committee(November 2013 - PDF)

Charge to the Committee:

Identify structural problems, impediments and disincentives to interdisciplinary teaching, student advising, and research.

The UAF Faculty Senate has formed an  ad hoc  faculty committee to start addressing practical problems that faculty have with interdisciplinary work at UAF.  We need to identify the full suite of problems in order to tackle them effectively.  The first step is this faculty committee and its report.  Administrators will have valuable input also, and will be added as a second step.  Solutions will come later and are not part of this committee's charge.
