Concurrent Session - Track B
Building interdisciplinary programs

The increasingly interdisciplinary nature of science was identified by about one-third of the F21 Class of 2002 as the most important challenge (and opportunity) facing leaders in undergraduate science technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. In these sessions, participants will learn about exemplar efforts to institutionalize the multidisciplinary facets of science and technology into undergraduate STEM education. F21 members will explore how leaders shape new policies and programs in building interest and consensus when undertaking curricular reform. This will include discussions about barriers to reform, i.e., what does not work.
