Does the institution's treatment of interdisciplinary research meet the criteria for this credit?:

A brief description or a copy of the institution’s policy regarding interdisciplinary research:

In outlying the criteria for hiring and for tenure and promotion, the Faculty Handbook states, "We define scholarship broadly so that faculty creativity, expressed in numerous ways, is valued: Scholarship is an investigation or creation pursued in a systematic way and presented to peers in a written, oral, visual or aural form for comment and critique. Peers may be departmental, Concordia, or professional-society colleagues… It is helpful to distinguish several categories of scholarship that are valued throughout this liberal arts college… Interdisciplinary Scholarship. This category consists of investigations at the interface between traditional disciplines or investigations by a team of faculty of a broad problem. Examples include research projects submitted for publication, book reviews, creative writing, textbook writing, recitals, musical compositions, artistic productions and performances, invited lectures, presentations at local, regional and national meetings, and leading in-service workshops.”
