In Spring 2011, the Center for Diversity and Global Engagement (CDGE) began a new initiative to promote and support an interdisciplinary and multidimensional learning culture. For Spring 2013, we have updated the concept to focus more closely on Independent Study projects that clearly address the CDGE themes. These are: 1. A climate of inclusion, collaboration, and respect 2. Global Engagement, such as projects that study the interaction between diverse peoples and cultures, or problems posed by globalisation 3. International and domestic diversity, including race, class, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, abilities, etc 4. Minority and historically undeserved communities. I-Seminars are intended to 1. Showcase senior IS projects that address CDGE themes in a setting where faculty, staff and students from diverse perspectives engage in dialogue within and across academic disciplines 2. Provide students with useful feedback from multiple perspectives to enable them to determine how best to move forward with their projects 3. Help students develop public speaking skills. I-Seminar serves as a space for idea sharing on relatively incomplete but mature IS projects nominated by various academic departments.
