CINDS Mission and Vision

CINDS Mission and Vision


CINDS will lead Rowan University’s community toward breaking disciplinary boundaries and encourage interdisciplinary collaboration in academic curriculum, programming and research and reflect upon and promote values of interdisciplinarity, while championing diversity, equity, and inclusion for all communities we engage.  


CINDS provides:

  • an administrative home for interdisciplinary academic programs, 
  • promotes the value of those programs
  • facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration in research, programming and academics across Rowan University in order to better answer questions and research solutions holistically (across disciplines).    
In doing their work, CINDS  strives to champion diversity, equity and inclusion for all. This empowers us to reach our full potential, fueling innovation and connection with our students  and communities we serve.
