National Creative Campus
The idea of the Creative Campus is inspiring education reform and enlivening campus life at colleges and universities across the country. The Creative Campus first became part of a national dialogue when it was discussed by college presidents, provosts, deans and arts leaders in 2004 at an American Assembly meeting at Columbia University’s Arden House.
Vanderbilt University has been at the forefront of the national conversation and has recently launched its own Creative Campus initiative which seeks to place creativity at the center of campus life – integrating art, media, design and creative expression into the curriculum; transforming campus spaces through public art and performance; connecting faculty and students across disciplines, with a special emphasis on the links between artistic and scientific practice; and building community, both on and off campus, by using art and creativity to animate conversations, reach across cultures, and bring people together around heritage, public service and difficult dialogues.
