The meeting was focused on the priority area of “Interdisciplinary Culture.” Guest speakers Sally Pardue (STEM Center), Michael Aikens (iCube), and Claire Stinson (Planning & Finance) were invited to speak on how their areas support interdisciplinary culture and the factors that have led to success. They shared examples of how the units support collaboration within departments and how they partner with the outside community.
The meeting ended with the co-chairs sharing various frameworks to think through the generation of strategic goals.
