Faculty members in the Dyson School frequently collaborate with colleagues in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Computer and Information Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Natural Resources, the New York City Tech campus, and other units on campus.

The SC Johnson College of Business is also home to the Business of Food which is a unique collaboration across Schools in the College of Business and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The Business of Food brings together leading researchers, teachers, and industry professionals to be the thought leaders who shape how business education works to sustainably feed the world through interdisciplinary collaborations that lead policy discussions, create cutting edge research, and influence business-based decision making.
