Cluster–Working Group

The Mechanisms of Collaboration: Research Clusters and Faculty Working Groups


Since interdisciplinarity, connectivity, and collaboration are the original aims of the Corridor initiative, designated areas of shared scholarly strength were defined as “Clusters” that comprised “Working Groups” of faculty across the three research universities

  • Clusters are defined as broad thematic rubrics.
  • Working groups are groups of scholars working on an issue/project under a cluster or thematic rubric.

There can be several Working Groups in a given Cluster:
