Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Interdisciplinarity suffuses Duke’s schools and departments, with our university-wide institutes and initiatives serving as crucial incubators of innovations in research, pedagogy, and outreach.

Research

Interdisciplinary research at Duke takes many forms and can range from a single scholar to a team of investigators expanding the frontiers of knowledge. Much of this work is catalyzed by our institutes and initiatives.

Education

Today’s most complex challenges demand new forms of expertise and collaboration. Duke gives students opportunities to explore issues across disciplines, departments, and methods, often with a team-based approach.

Engagement

The interdisciplinary experience goes beyond the classroom and lab, as many faculty and students collaborate with external parties to develop research agendas and translate knowledge for decision-makers and broader publics.
