UC San Diego has identified four research priorities to build the interdisciplinary expertise necessary to address society’s greatest challenges and forge new intellectual enterprises that rely on the ability to work across diverse disciplines. These themes are:

  • Understanding and Protecting the Planet
  • Enriching Human Life and Society
  • Exploring the Basis of Human Knowledge, Learning and Creativity
  • Understanding Cultures and Addressing Disparities in Society

The symposium recognizes scholarly work produced by UC San Diego undergraduate and graduate students, as well as that of postdoctoral scholars who have been awarded a FISP fellowship. The symposium encourages additional interaction between students and faculty at the research level.
