The mission of the Center for Interdisciplinarity (C4I), located at Michigan State University (MSU), is to strengthen and nurture interdisciplinary research involving the arts and humanities at MSU, as well as locally, nationally, and internationally. In addition to conducting its own research, C4I serves as a resource for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in the MSU College of Arts & Letters and across campus, as well as for partners in the local community and across the region. It also serves as an advocate for researchers and scholars, consults with teams, provides resources for and about interdisciplinarity, and creates opportunities for training, graduate education, networking, mentorship, visibility, and funding both on and off campus.
