Preliminary Guide to the Interdisciplinary Studies Records, 1998 - 2006

Abstract

Duke University's strategic plan emphasizes interdisciplinary studies because important teaching, learning, and research often occur across the traditional boundaries of disciplines, departments, or schools. Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke University became an office under the direction of the Provost with the appointment of the first Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies in 1998. Prior to this, direction of interdisciplinary studies was a responsibility of the Dean of the Graduate School/Vice Provost for Graduate Education.

Records contain subject files, correspondence, reports, and planning documents related to Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke, including the Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies, the Franklin Humanities Institute, Information Science and Information Studies, Women's Studies, Science Technology and Human Values, the Black Faculty Initiative, the University Scholars Program, global health, arts and humanities, the arts warehouse, development and grants, and faculty involvement with interdisciplinary teaching.
