CENTER FOR DISCIPLINARY INNOVATION
The Center for Disciplinary Innovation (CDI) fosters long-term transformation of the infrastructures of research and teaching. It does so by bringing together faculty from different departments to co-teach exploratory seminars at the graduate level as a first step toward the development of new programs, centers and committees. Each faculty member receives full credit for teaching the course and each team receives a $1,000 stipend for course-related purposes.
How to Apply
Proposals to teach in the CDI are due in November for the following academic year. Proposals should include a description of the seminar and its goals, along with a provisional syllabus. The rationale for the course should address larger disciplinary contexts as well as local or specific topics. Please indicate the quarter(s) in which you would like the seminar to be offered.

Please contact Mai Vukcevich (email@example.com), Assistant Director of the CDI, for additional information.
