About the 1U4U initiative
1U4U is designed to seed multidisciplinary faculty/student collaborations in areas of mutual research interest and opportunity. The initiative seeks innovative projects aimed at campus, education, engagement, research and scholarship that are not subject to traditional peer review. In order to receive funding priority, the project must have the potential of leading to external funding, have societal impact, and be a collaboration between health sciences and main campus.
Cultivate One U partnerships across campus and within our communities
Enable innovative, collaborative education and training
Address social and scientific/engineering problems too deep and complex to be solved by any single discipline
Stimulate early, high-risk approaches that would not attract support from traditional government or foundation funding sources
Engage young researchers and scholars in multidisciplinary partnerships
Facilitate discussion and collaboration among scholars interested in the same challenges who might not meet otherwise
