Faculty Communities of Interest

Relationships of trust and respect between Big Ten Academic Alliance colleges and departments are keys to successful partnerships. Faculty from similar Big Ten Academic Alliance departments often meet via phone, videoconference, or while attending professional conferences to share experiences and identify opportunities to work together.  Over time, these informal academic networks have fostered successful activities in engineering, nursing, political science, women's studies, Asian American Studies, American Indian Studies, and several other disciplines.
