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:
Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity UofL will be recognized among the nation’s foremost public metropolitan research universities with a faculty of distinction who have outstanding national and international reputations in areas of research and other scholarly activities. These scholars will serve as outstanding mentors for undergraduate, graduate and professional students as well as postdoctoral scholars. UofL will achieve and maintain excellence in selected disciplines and will develop novel niche and interdisciplinary research foci that will rapidly gain national prominence. Interdisciplinary and collaborative research will draw on and support the scholarship of many disciplines, including the arts, humanities, social sciences and others without traditional access to extensive research funding. These disciplines will be recognized as critical components of success in discovery research and civic engagement. UofL will have a national reputation for translational and applied research that both stimulates the educational experience and provides rapid delivery of the benefits of discovery and creativity to the public. Excellence in research will be translated to solutions for problems and to meet community needs. Discoveries of UofL scholars will generate intellectual property, and UofL will assist such scholars in bringing ideas to the marketplace for the benefit of the public, the inventor and the university. The research enterprise of the university will be funded from financial rewards from these activities as well as from strong support from government and foundation granting agencies and creative development strategies will fund the research enterprise of the university.
