The Center for Interdisciplinary Study of Science and the Arts seeks to advance cohesion in campuswide research and teaching that integrates science and the arts. The center will facilitate collaboration, provide an outlet for the dissemination of interdisciplinary work at the University of Arkansas, incubate ideas that introduce students to interdisciplinary modes of thinking, lend a unique identity to arts programs at the university, help attract top students whose interests often bridge science and the arts, and build on an existing strength on campus.
