Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence
In 2013, Binghamton University developed a new approach to hiring faculty and supporting research by creating Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence (TAEs). All are areas of inquiry in which Binghamton has developed strength in research and graduate education and raise complex questions. The TAEs address critical social, scientific, technological, economic, cultural and policy issues that can best be addressed by teams of faculty employing the perspectives and methodologies of multiple disciplines.
