  • To establish policies and procedures that enhance interdisciplinary collaborations within and across the departments of Steinhardt, across the schools of New York University, between the boundaries of international organizations and by way of community based institutions such as schools, service organizations, and hospitals with an emphasis on the translation of research to practice within international, national and local contexts
