IRCs: Academic Year 2012-13

Enjoy the Intellectually Stimulating Conversations You Expected When You Entered Academia.  Join Your Colleagues, And Integrate IRC Participation into Your Academic Goals


AY12-13 Interdisciplinary Research Clusters

Interdisciplinary research clusters at UNH enable faculty to engage with each other in stimulating research- oriented environments. They are faculty led; membership is open to all faculty and researchers. Individual faculty may be members of more than one cluster.  Research clusters may conduct a range of activities such as: discussing literature, best practices, and current issues; exploring areas of overlap between the academic interests of individual faculty; hosting talks and presentations by members and guests; promoting faculty involvement with external professional organizations, funding agencies, and publishers; and promoting collaboration on grant applications, research, and publications. Some institutional financial support is available for activities that enhance the goals of the cluster.  For more details about the structure of IRCs go to

The IRCs for this academic year are listed below.  Contact the facilitators for more information, to join, to be added to the distribution lists, and/or to make your interests known.  Click on titles for links to individual IRC pages.
