Reimagine Higher Education
We believe a 21st century education requires building creative capacity to solve problems and advance innovation for the public good--in addition to providing disciplinary training.
Build Creative Capacity
Through our Curb Scholars program, academic innovations, and campus-wide programs, we foster the capacity of faculty, staff, and students to invent and imagine, co-create across disciplines, compellingly express their ideas and stories, and implement novel solutions and innovations.
Develop a Community of Creative Scholars
The Curb Scholars Program is the first Scholarship in the country focused on creative practice and innovation. We develop students who can ask provocative questions, manage ambiguity, take risks, experiment, and lead innovation for the public good.
Foster Academic Innovation
We foster curricular innovations that can augment any major on campus--integrating media, design, creative problem solving, and creative expression with rigorous disciplinary training and liberal arts education.
Our campus-wide programs and pilots provoke unexpected conversations, collaborations, and campus experiences.
