UVM Office of Sustainability
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:
UVM Faculty Union Contract, Article 14.5, Appointments & Evaluation: Tenure-Track and Tenured Faculty: "The University is committed to longstanding traditions of scholarship as well as evolving perspectives on scholarship. The University further recognizes that the role of academia is not static, and that methodologies, topics of interest, and boundaries within and between disciplines change over time. The University will continue to support scholars in all of these traditions."…” The University strongly supports collaborative and cross-disciplinary research…” This contract meets the criteria for grievances. The Professional Standards Committee uses criteria of the tenure-granting unit.
