September Spotlight: 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.
