Integrated Clusters

Integrated clusters are transformative, holistic learning communities that promote critical thinking, collaboration, and career preparation by valuing innovation, entrepreneurship, engaged teaching and learning, and interdisciplinary scholarship. Each cluster supports knowledge and skill generation and acquisition as well as application to serve others. Clusters enhance existing university strengths and build new ones. The integrated clusters form a university that becomes an open laboratory, a place where interdisciplinary ideas flourish across disciplines, community, and business.
