Supporting the Future of Creativity

Studying, practicing and appreciating the arts makes our communities and our community leaders stronger. The arts stimulate creativity, innovation and daring — the very assets today’s graduates need to ignite bold new ideas, invent transformative experiences and devise innovative solutions for global challenges. Others are only imagining a creative future; the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD) is defining the future of creativity. We are reinventing our curriculum to combine strong disciplinary training in the arts with a focus on innovation, collaboration and experimentation.
