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 intellectual horizons exploring challenges of scientific know-how, ethical choices, and spiritual discernment essential for human flourishing. The refereed Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies, a major resource for college-level instruction, especially honors courses, builds on the classical paideia of educating the whole person. This educational endeavor aspires to a new Summa on Judeo-Christian ethical and intellectual foundations that all can cherish. Annual conferences attract creative interdisciplinary scholars, with papers considered for publication. Learn more
