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:

  • Provide an open forum for communication across disciplines
  • Encourage transdisciplinary collaborations to address seemingly intractable problems of complex systems at changing scales
  • Infuse education at all levels with complex adaptive systems thinking, while creating exciting new opportunities to train young and established scientists in the data integration and computational skills required now and in the long term for an evolving workforce.
