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 all contract renewal and promotion decisions, the College positively recognizes research that crosses disciplinary boundaries. Indeed, in the faculty search process, preference is given to individuals who have interdisciplinary research interests and whose expertise can serve multiple academic programs. There is no need for a written policy regarding interdisciplinary research, as the College has eliminated academic departments in favor of multi-disciplinary divisions in order to foster more interdisciplinary dialog, teaching, and research. Purely disciplinary assessments of research have no priority in the promotion and contract renewal processes. (Green Mountain College does not have a tenure system.)
