Welcome to the TRI website

In 2009, the University of Vermont (UVM) embarked upon an unprecedented University-wide conversation — the Transdisciplinary Research Initiative, or TRI — to strategically advance our national role as a premier small research university.

As a result of the TRI process, three Initiatives were identified in 2010: Complex Systems, Food Systems, and Neuroscience, Behavior and Health.

In 2013-14, the TRI continued to help us map transdisciplinary strengths across campus and develop UVM's distinctive reputation for research and scholarship around the world. The TRI also helps guides local efforts, including the creation of exciting and impactful new knowledge for Vermont and the nation, the advancement of economic development, and the engagement of our communities.
