JGU has been committed to promoting interdisciplinarity in its academic and administrative functioning. All eight schools at the university are situated in a single academic block, facilitating free and frequent interaction between faculty members of the different schools. As an institutional policy, faculty members from different schools share offices, thus encouraging discourse between disciplines.
The creation of interdisciplinary research centres and groups in all the schools has also allowed faculty members from various disciplines to collaborate on a continuing basis, measures which have significantly enhanced campus conversations across schools leading to greater interdisciplinary research.
