Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies
The Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies values liberal learning, a collegial, collaborative environment, cultural diversity and diversity of thought and ideas, engagement with our local and global communities, and risk-taking and innovation. We encourage teaching and exploration that challenges disciplinary boundaries. We provide a place for faculty, staff, and students to propose new, innovative, collaborative programs that bring together faculty, staff and students from across the university and the wider community.
Interdisciplinary work integrates knowledge, modes of thinking and experiences from two or more disciplines. This rigorous examination of real world problems and issues from multiple perspectives involves both depth and application of knowledge. We partner with talented and passionate faculty from across Grand Valley to challenge students to achieve. The Brooks College offers both academic programs as well as University-wide service programs that blend knowledge with experience. We invite you to join us!
