Organizer of U-LINK Phase I Q&A Session at RSMAS

Interdisciplinary Inquiry, one of the transformative initiatives of the University of Miami’s Roadmap to Our New Century, will support teams of scholars from multiple disciplines in collaborative, problem-based inquiry to address the complex challenges of society through two pillars: geography and problems. U-LINK (University of Miami Laboratory for Integrative Knowledge) addresses the “problems” pillar.

The world’s most compelling and difficult problems are complex. Addressing the challenges of climate change, for example, requires thinking about weather patterns, relationship of disease and environment/diet, coastal architecture, energy use, city planning, human communication, the role of truth in media, international relations, big data and many other fields.

A key purpose of research universities like the University of Miami is to serve as centers of inquiry in which scholars from multiple disciplines can work together to pursue innovation, in areas where the world needs them most. The diversity inherent in UM’s 11 schools and colleges should provide unique advantages in exploring and addressing these types of problems.
