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

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

According to Provost Stearns, George Mason University does this as part of its academic culture, but has no documented university-wide policy. Since a substantial portion of Mason's academic departments and research centers are explicitly interdisciplinary (e.g., "Environmental Science AND Policy" dept., "Center for Climate AND Society"), interdisciplinary research is core to Mason's identity and moniker, "where innovation is tradition."
