The University of Arizona boasts many interdisciplinary and community collaborations that produce exciting, vital work. One such gem is the partnership between the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the Southwest Folklife Alliance, whose work was featured in the Graduate Center’s Spring 2017 Interdisciplinary Collaborations Lecture Series. And while you’re likely familiar with Tucson Meet Yourself, you may not know about the year round-programming that celebrates the southwest.

Interdisciplinarity in action, while not always easy, is an exciting opportunity for individuals in different fields to conjoin their best assets and create projects that broaden and amplify their strengths in order to address sprawling, tangled problems that are bigger than can be fully addressed by any one discipline. One such project is Green Streets in South Tucson, a collaboration among members of both the University of Arizona and wider Tucson community.
