Awards and Recognitions
The Common Core is driven to provide the highest quality cross disciplinary learning for our undergraduates, and, as an essential aspect of this task, we aspire to provide a culture of effective experimentation that enhances the learning of our colleagues, our community and our partners around the world. Working along multiple fronts to create such a culture, our team has begun to more deeply explore transdisciplinarity as a framework for configuring teaching and learning as transformative acts.
