The field of human-animal interaction (HAI) represents the interdisciplinary study of the effects and mechanisms of the interrelationships between humans and animals. These relationships date back centuries, yet have only recently been the focus of scholastic study. The academic focus of HAI spans numerous disciplines and departments, creating the need for interdisciplinary centers of excellence to coordinate and advance this important research. Since the first center was created in 1977, the proliferation of new HAI centers and institutes has mirrored the field's growth.
