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:
As per the "UNIVERSITY-WIDE EVALUATION GUIDELINES FOR PROMOTIONS AND TENURE," UNCG states that "The evaluation of research and creative activities shall consider contributions to the field or discipline, including interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and collaborative work, the quality of the work, and its significance or impact" (p. 7). Further, "Professional, interdisciplinary, and community-related service will be given consideration as part of promotion and tenure review based on their importance to the discipline or profession and the mission of the University." Further, individual departments may provide more specific valuation of interdisciplinarity. (In addition, the Provost's Office provides a document to guide the administration of, including tenure and promotion of faculty within, interdisciplinary programs; the website URL is in the notes field for this credit.)
