IDR Day 2015

Come join the Interdisciplinary Research Honor Society for it’s 5th Annual IDR Day! This year we are changing things up a bit and combining the best of our research symposium and roundtable problem-solving events into one, with something for everyone. We have an exciting lineup of speakers who will share their insights into working in interdisciplinary teams, interdisciplinary graduate education, and how to bridge science, technology and the arts. Graduate and undergraduate students will showcase their own IDR in poster sessions, and we’ll wrap up with a great buffet dinner and engaging roundtable discussions to try to solve some important regional problems in diverse teams.

IDR Day is FREE and open to anyone on campus! Science, Engineering, Liberal Arts… undergrads through faculty and staff, we welcome and strongly encourage all to participate in this unique event!
