Petition Closed

As students working to diversify our education, we feel the university must provide more interdisciplinary advising to assist us in achieving our academic goals. A sustainable world is inherently multidisciplinary, requiring not only scientific education but also education in social sciences and the arts and humanities. Too often the isolated framework that the university's many departmental advisers currently operate within make it near impossible for students to move between different departments on campus, let alone colleges, or have a complete awareness of the valuable opportunities offered by the numerous programs on campus. An increased level of transparency between and improved communication between departments is necessary for students looking to get a multi-disciplined education in sustainability while still attaining the depth of investigation necessary for any particular degree.  Only by working towards this end will the university continue to produce well-rounded graduates able to develop a sustainable world and compete in the increasingly globalized and synthetic marketplace of today. Please, list your major and colorado.edu email address in the personal notes space and if possible a short descripion of your experience with this issue to serve as tesimony to help this cause!

Cross-departmentalize student Advising
