There are many different definitions of "interdisciplinary." For the purposes of the Undergraduate Research Scholarship Program, eligible student projects must include at least one faculty mentor from both a Professional School and a College Division, two separate Professional Schools or Divisions, or a Professional School or College Division and an Organized Research Unit.
Mentors can come from two of the Professional Schools and/or College Divisions, or from one of these and from an Organized Research Unit, but both mentors cannot come from the same school, division or unit. For example, a student can have one mentor from Comparative Literature and another from the Luskin School of Public Affairs, but they cannot have one mentor from Comparative Literature and another from Linguistics, as both of these departments are in the Humanities Division.
