As of January 1, 2013, the name of our Association officially became the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies. This change followed a lengthy consultation process over the last couple of years, including conversations at the last two conferences, a survey of past presidents (all of whom agreed), and finally a vote in favor by 90.1% of members in an online vote. The paperwork has been filed with and approved by the State of Ohio,where the Association is registered. It is felt that the new name more accurately reflects the mission of the Association within contemporary understanding, especially outside of North America.
AIS is an interdisciplinary professional organization founded in 1979 to promote the interchange of ideas among scholars and administrators in all of the arts and sciences on intellectual and organizational issues related to furthering integrative studies. Incorporated as a non-profit educational association in the State of Ohio, it has an international membership. More >>
