Interdisciplinary Initiatives

The IAS offers a range of opportunities for interdisciplinary scholars, students, and community members to work and collaborate in community. Our Residential Fellows—who include faculty fellows and Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows—spend a semester or year in residence together to work intensively on their own research and creative projects and meet regularly to support one another. Our Research and Creative Collaboratives are self-initiated groups that come together with the idea of working on a project of common interest. And our 5x5 Initiative groups people from different disciplinary backgrounds together for low-stakes, short-term exploration around a common theme.
