The Institute for Interdisciplinary Research, a new model of higher education for the 21st century, encourages a Renaissance of the liberal arts re-connecting knowledge, ethics and faith via dialogue across all disciplines. The quest for the unity of knowledge broadens educational horizons, addressing contemporary challenges of scientific know-how, ethical choices, and spiritual discernment essential for human flourishing. This educational endeavor aspires to restore Judeo-Christian ethical and intellectual foundations that all can cherish. The refereed Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is a major resource for college-level instruction, especially honors courses, reflecting the classical paideia of educating the whole person. JIS caps/updates the Great Books tradition that inspires seekers. Annual conferences attract creative interdisciplinary scholars, with papers considered for publication. Learn more
