We facilitate collaboration among academic programs and disciplines as well as between faculty, staff, and students in teaching and learning, research, and extracurricular activities. Collaboration is being accomplished with several initiatives, including the following examples.
UND is facilitating collaboration through the creation of new interdisciplinary programs.
Master of Public Health
The recently initiated Master of Public Health program is shared across the two research campuses, UND and North Dakota State University (NDSU), and within UND, across two colleges, the College of Business & Public Administration and the School of Medicine & Health Sciences. Each campus offers three specialty areas, and students choose which campus has the variation of the program that best meets their needs.
Social Entrepreneurship Graduate Certificate
Social Entrepreneurship is being offered collaboratively on the UND campus itself, engaging three departments across two colleges.
The Leadership minor is a collaborative effort between the Department of Psychology and the Department of Management.
Digital Humanities unites faculty and students across several disciplines in the College of Arts & Sciences.
Northeast North Dakota STEM Network
UND is participating in the STEM Network, a statewide initiative organized to produce better-prepared students for the workplace. The network aims to transform K-12 education and answer a growing industry need for workforce in emerging science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. UND hosted the the inaugural meeting of the northeast North Dakota STEM Network in 2013.
