The University of Rochester’s membership in the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) provides faculty the opportunity to participate in more than 85 active Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) in the Arts, Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry and Health, Science and Social Sciences. View examples of successful projects and their impact.

AS&E Faculty wishing to participate in a current WUN IRG should first contact Todd St. Vrain. Many of the research groups offer free virtual seminars open to faculty and graduate students.


Faculty seeking support for non-WUN international collaboration projects that they have already established should liaise with Todd St. Vrain.

International Collaboration Fund application for current WUN IRG projects and other pre-existing international projects are due to Todd St. Vrain by 5:00pm, January 15, 2013.
