With the growing recognition of the importance of interdisciplinary research, many faculty have increased their efforts to form interdisciplinary research teams. Oftentimes, attempts to put together such teams are hampered because faculty have a limited picture of the research interests and expertise of their colleagues. This paper reports on three major initiatives supported by the Office of Research in the College of Education at Florida State University aiming at increasing interdisciplinary research among faculty members, namely the design and implementation of (1) a college-wide faculty research interests/expertise database, (2) a college-level research grant program, and (3) a multi-college research conference.
