Center for Interdisciplinary Thinking

What we do

Our main goal is to advance interdisciplinary thinking by supporting the already strong presence of interdisciplinary programs in the College of Arts & Sciences and by organizing and hosting events to foment new interdisciplinary connections.

CAS recently formed the Center for Interdisciplinary Thinking (CIT) to support our current interdisciplinary programs, and to provide opportunities for interdisciplinary thinking in new and imaginative ways. This creative body will dedicate their efforts to enriching the intellectual life of undergraduate students through various organized events. Loyola faculty members Jeffrey Doering (Biology), Paul Jay (English), John McCarthy (Theology), Bren Ortega Murphy (Women's Studies and Gender Studies and School of Communication), Benjamin Penglase (Anthropology), and George Thiruvathukal (Computer Science) will serve as the CIT-Fellows for this initiative and will meet throughout the year to fine-tune the project.

With CIT, Loyola joins other well-known peer institution programs including Duke University, Boston College, Stanford University, and Wesleyan University in offering a metastructure in order to advance interdisciplinary thinking. Stay tuned for more!
