Report on Interdisciplinary initiatives available

The Graduate School is pleased to announce the release of a study by Gail Dubrow and Jennifer Harris: “Seeding, Supporting, and Sustaining Interdisciplinary Initiatives at the University of Washington: Findings, Recommendations and Strategies.” During Academic Year 2004-2005, Associate Dean Dubrow and Postdoctoral Researcher Harris established the Network of Interdisciplinary Initiatives based on their findings from meetings, focus groups, and surveys with interdisciplinary program directors, faculty, students, and administrators. Their report details findings about the successes and challenges of interdisciplinary activity at the University and outlines strategies for implementation of their recommendations. Comments will be accepted until March 15 and should be directed to the authors at dubrow@umn.edu  and genoveva@u.washington.edu. The web link for the report is:
