Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute

The Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute (DCII) was established in the spring of 2012 with a generous gift from the Dedman Family Foundation.

This institute encompasses all the divisions within Dedman College: humanities, social sciences and sciences, which includes mathematics and statistics. It also reaches out through its programs to the rest of the University and to the local community, creating a culture of interdisciplinary inquiry and bridging the physical sciences and the humanities, the liberal arts and the professional schools, and academia and the broader community.
