The Task Force proposes that the new College be organized in nine academic departments, four college-wide centers and three virtual, cross-cutting “Collaboratives for Excellence”— a Collaborative for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Research, a Collaborative for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, and a Collaborative for Excellence in Public Engagement. This structure balances a desire to reduce the structural and financial barriers that currently impede cross-departmental and interdisciplinary collaboration in CEHD and CHE with a concern that the positive national reputation and rankings of current departments and programs not be jeopardized during this restructuring.
