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:
UCCS gives positive recognition to interdisciplinary, trans-disciplinary, and multidisciplinary research during faculty promotion and tenure decisions.
In 2009, UCCS adopted new guidelines for Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure with the express intent of broadening previous considerations of what counted as scholarship. Faculty can now develop a Faculty Responsibility Statement to highlight their “Scholarship of Integration” (collaborations across disciplines or with non-specialists), Scholarship of Creative Works, Scholarship of Application, and other forms of research that traditionally have been devalued in RPT decisions.
