Grand Challenges for the Liberal Arts Initiative
|Faculty members gather to discuss interdisciplinary collaboration on grand challenges research.|
The Grand Challenges for the Liberal Arts Initiative (GCLAI) is an innovative project for undergraduate education, faculty research and public engagement. GCLAI strengthens the University of New Hampshire's response to grand challenges, defined as urgent, widely-shared problems that call for large-scale, long-term coordinated responses. Because grand challenges cross disciplinary boundaries, so must responses to them. The liberal arts must play a central role in facing these challenges.
