Common Interest Groups
Share |



The purpose of a Common Interest Group is to encourage groups of individuals to come together in an organic and flexible way around shared intellectual topics or professional concerns. These groups can be created for the purpose of networking, exchange of information, development of new fields of investigation or around other emerging opportunities. Members are reminded that ARNOVA is committed to being multi-disciplinary; thus discipline-based groups are discouraged.

For additional information on the CIGs, contact information is below.
