One of the core purposes of University General Education programs it to help students develop interdisciplinary abilities. Indeed, the University experience overall is meant to enhance such capacity. So questions arise:
Who is better at teaching interdisciplinarity? A disciplined person or an interdisciplinary person?
What type of people typically comprise a university, disciplined individuals or interdisciplinary individuals?
Can a disciplined person train others to be interdisciplinary?
If we believe that one must have disciplined expertise to be able to teach and research in a particular discipline, does not the same hold true for interdisciplinarity, that we need individuals trained in the research and teaching of interdisciplinarity?
