Michael Best Wins "Outstanding Interdisciplinary Activities Award"
Michael Best is the Winner of the 2010, Class of 1934 "Outstanding Interdisciplinary Activities Award" based on exemplifcation of some of the best outcomes of interdisciplinary research.
This award recognizes faculty who have made significant interdisciplinary contributions to teaching and research. It is becoming increasingly clear that many opportunities for innovative teaching and research involve intellectual efforts from more than one discipline. The Institute, through its opportunities for joint appointments, is encouraging such activity. The nomination of multiple people to share in the award is permissible, to enable recognition of distinguished collaborative activities, particularly by young, untenured faculty. This award has been made possible through the generosity of the Class of 1934. It includes a stipend of $7,500.
