Transdisciplinary Conversations
These transdisciplinary discussions bring together scientists, students, extension educators, business leaders, policymakers, farmers and others, allowing them to gather informally and make cross-disciplinary connections they might not otherwise make.
The Institutes
The University of Nebraska has invested in four interdisciplinary, University-wide institutes—including the Rural Futures Institute, the Buffett Early Childhood Institute, the National Strategic Research Institute, and the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Institute—that leverage talent and research-based expertise from across the University of Nebraska system to focus on complex state, national, and global challenges.
