Abstract and Keywords
“Facilitating Interdisciplinary Scholars,” by Stephanie Pfirman and Paula J. S. Martin, explores approaches to interdisciplinary scholarship with comparison to disciplinary traditions in higher education. The authors investigate the particular challenges of interdisciplinary research, teaching, and service for scholars throughout different mileposts in a scholarly career. Ideas to support interdisciplinary faculty are presented, from the creation of the position, to the point of hire, and through a career timeline to tenure and posttenure review. As many institutions have barriers for scholars working between departments, frameworks to foster interdisciplinary collaboration are discussed. Special challenges in interdisciplinary scholarly productivity, scholarly recognition, evaluation, promotion, and funding are examined.
