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:

The SURCI program seeks proposals for projects that foster and support interdisciplinary research groups at SIUE in developing their competitiveness for large-scale grants. Funding is available for research clusters targeting specific external funding programs that offer support for programmatic, infrastructure-building activities. Examples of targeted external funding opportunities include NSF Engineering Centers Program, NSF ADVANCE Program, NIH Roadmap Initiatives, the NEH Challenge, etc.

Research clusters that build collaborations across departments, colleges, and schools, and with other institutions of strategic importance are critical to enhancing our competitiveness. These partnerships should emerge naturally from shared research interests and needs, and take into account funding opportunities, institutional history, academic priorities and SIUE’s unique strengths. This initiative offers competitive grant funding to encourage the development and success of such partnerships.
