A more interdisciplinary university

  • Encourage research activities across department units and with WSU
  • Center for race, ethnicity and gender studies
  • Can we combine scholarly activity & outreach with service offices (e.g. helping low income communities in academic outreach areas with admission and financial aid to help low income students from that community access college
  • Joint appointments across colleges, across units, and across universities
  • More focus on applied research
  • Expand/utilize extension and service learning services to develop and promote active, healthy communities. Communities can be university, local, state, regional, global. This work can be driven throughout our university curricula- inherently creates outreach and should result in grant procurement and scholarship. Addresses global and national health care concerns with focus on prevention. An integral piece of sustainability. Connects us globally – should pull together multiple disciplines across campus.
  • Divorce scholarly/research programs from structure required to support accredited undergrad programs
  • Urban research
  • Provide incentives – course relief, etc.
  • Develop metrics for success
  • Elimination of traditional departments, form units based on priorities
  • Support/encourage novel-focused research clusters
  • Strengthening of things like “dancers, drummers, dreamers.”
  • Keep the institutes independent of colleges
  • Develop umbrella commitment across all core areas
  • Integrative advancement of interdisciplinary in focus areas
  • Develop signature programs – create common spaces for interaction
  • Build research teams within different departments
