Over the next five years, IBS will create a governance structure and approach to membership that enables it to realize the Institute's commitment to innovative interdisciplinary research, teaching, and engagement.
Rationale: As IBS changes, both by natural evolution and by design, its governance system must also change. The Institute's original interdisciplinary program structure has grown substantially, and Institute activities have continued to expand. IBS members and their departmental colleagues have called for greater levels of engagement and a more porous IBS overall. Recommendations include a new faculty organization, an expanded board of directors with broad representation from across IBS, and a well-documented governing system outlining clear roles and procedures. IBS will keep, and continue to build upon, its current structure of programs, while also seeking opportunities for innovative research, including new interdisciplinary Working Groups that could themselves become programs.
Such governing mechanisms will support the aspirations of the new strategic plan, and provide a strong foundation for the next phase of the Institute's development. They will ensure a more inclusive, transparent, and communicative IBS, able to facilitate a greater variety of high-quality research topics and related advocacy, engagement, outreach, and teaching.
