2015 Interdisciplinary Grad Group Winners Announced
What do fungi and music and sound studies have in common?
Each is the intellectual focus of an Interdisciplinary Graduate Group (IDGG) approved via a University-wide competition hosted by the Graduate School last year. The 15 groups selected in late May include both new and existing graduate groups, with funded groups receiving between $3,600 and $12,000 to support their activities. IDGGs are collaborative groups of faculty and graduate students that coalesce around an emerging issue or question of mutual intellectual interest. Their research, educational, and training activities expand and enhance interdisciplinary graduate and professional education at the University of Minnesota.
The following IDGGs were selected in the 2015 competition:
- Aging Studies
- Anthropological, Environmental, and Geological Interdisciplinary Sciences group (AEGIS)
- Auditory Perception and Neuroscience
- Biologically Motivated
- Biostatistics in Genetics and Genomics (BiG2)
- Boreas Leadership Program
- Critical Race and Ethnic Studies

- Early Modern Atlantic Workshop
- FEASt (Food, Environmental, and Agricultural Studies)
- Interdisciplinary Studies of Innovative Community-Based Approaches to Research Dissemination (CARD)
