  20. 20. Syracuse UniversityInterdisciplinary Research Clusters• Syracuse’s 2001 Academic Plan called for advancing the University’s research by investing in interdisciplinary clusters that fit our academic strengths.• Scholarship in Action embraced that concept by creating and investing in a series of inter-disciplinary, highly collaborative research clusters that leverage Syracuses map of excellence.Interdisciplinary Research Models RETREAT CoRE Steering Committee
  21. 21. Syracuse University11 Interdisciplinary Research Clusters• Biomaterials • Gerontology, Health & Policy• Citizenship & Governance • Global Enterprise Technology• Collaborative Design • Inclusive Urban Education• Disability • Physics• Entrepreneurship • Public/Collaborative Arts & Humanities• Environmental SystemsEach includes major faculty appointments for clusterleadership, disciplined investment from both University andschool/college resources, and creation of multi-institutional, cross-sectorpartnerships.Interdisciplinary Research Models RETREAT CoRE Steering Committee
  22. 22. A Few (Unsubstantiated) Conclusions• Faculty outreach, as well as community outreach, appear minimal or unclear.• Many interdisciplinary initiatives remain top-down structures.• Many interdisciplinary initiatives remain limited to select disciplines and/or are isolated from the larger university community.Interdisciplinary Research Models RETREAT CoRE Steering Committee
