Seven years ago, in a moment of benighted activism, I founded UNIversitas, the University of Northern Iowa's Journal of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity. It was meant to promote interdisciplinarity by bringing together contributions from all corners of the institution and to reach out to alumni/ae and the community at large. Thanks to Jesse Swan, the current editor, UNIversitas is very much alive. Especially timely and provocative is the Forum section on "Arts and Sciences, Transcending Boundaries." My sincere congratulations to my friend Jesse, editor extraordinaire, who is making great things happen!
