Praise for Creating Interdisciplinary Campus Cultures "Klein's analysis shows convincingly that from research in thesciences to new graduate-level programs and departments, to newdesigns for general education, interdisciplinarity is now prevalentthroughout American colleges and universities. . . . Kleindocuments trends, traces historical patterns and precedents, andprovides practical advice. Going directly to the heart of ourinstitutional realities, she focuses attention on some of the morechallenging aspects of bringing together ambitious goals forinterdisciplinary vitality with institutional, budgetary, andgovernance systems. A singular strength of this book, then, is thepractical advice it provides about such nitty-gritty issues asprogram review, faculty development, tenure and promotion, hiring,and the political economy of interdisciplinarity. . . . We knowthat readers everywhere will find [this book] simultaneously richlyilluminating and intensively useful." --from the foreword by Carol Geary Schneider, president,Association of American Colleges and Universities "Klein reveals how universities can move beyond glib rhetoricabout being interdisciplinary toward pervasive fullinterdisciplinarity. Institutions that heed her call forrestructured intellectual environments are most likely to thrive inthe new millennium." --William H. Newell, professor, Interdisciplinary Studies,Miami University, and executive director, Association forIntegrative Studies "In true interdisciplinary fashion, Julie Klein integrates atremendous amount of material into this book to tell the story ofinterdisciplinarity across the sciences, social sciences, andhumanities. And she does so both from the theoretical perspectiveof 'understanding' interdisciplinarity and from the practicalvantage of 'doing' interdisciplinarity. This book is a must-readfor faculty and administrators thinking about how to maximize theopportunities and minimize the challenges of interdisciplinaryprogramming on their campuses." --Diana Rhoten, director, Knowledge Institutions Program, anddirector, Digital Media and Learning Project, Social ScienceResearch Counsel
