The Biosocial Complexity Initiative has grown from these research groups and Centers as we have sought to maintain open communication among groups with common interests, share research, and evolve a deeper understanding of the new science of biosocial complexity. As a special initiative designated by President Michael Crow as exemplary of the New American University, ...our goals are:
Using the guidepost of evolutionary science
Addressing sustainability challenges using strategies inspired by natural systems
A transdisciplinary endeavor to improve our understanding of effective governance of social-ecological systems.
Transforming our understanding of disease
Transforming society...fusing intellectual disciplines…engaging globally
Focusing on four categories of policy informatics -- societal change, policy analysis, design interventions, and field building.
Shaping philosophical & methodological approaches to social complexity
Growing transdisciplinary collaboratives for meaningul change
Stimulating synergistic activities in biological, environmental and sociological research
The evolution & organization of insect societies
