Interdisciplinary Group

A distinctive academic element, composed of faculty drawn from various departments (and, in certain instances, from several campuses), representing various related fields of study and offering a degree in a specific field of study not represented by a department of instruction. At the graduate level, the these programs are administered by a graduate group and are under the direction of the Dean of the Graduate Division; at the undergraduate level, the administering body is called a faculty advisory committee.Typically, a group does not have an established budget or budgeted faculty FTE, although two graduate groups are exceptions (Energy and Resources Group and the Neuroscience Group). These constitute "augmented" graduate groups.
