The Creative Campus Initiative
Professor Carmen Gillespie and Heather Hennigan ‘15
Where the arts, innovation and technology meet
To prepare Bucknellians to solve global challenges, we must foster creative thinking that turns inspiration into innovation and imagination into action. We must capitalize on our special capacity to offer students an educational experience of invention, ingenuity and resourcefulness that separates them as leaders in the age ahead.
Here at Bucknell, artists regularly collaborate with engineers, humanists and scientists. But our goal is more ambitious than the co-education of artists and others.
With the right resources in the right places, we can capitalize on our diverse strengths and empower the creative capacity and confidence of all our students. We can make Bucknell a model creative campus, where every day, in every experience, students discover new dimensions of their originality, leadership and vision.
Opportunities in the Creative Campus Initiative
Endowed Fund for Interdisciplinary Creativity, Arts and Innovation
This interdisciplinary fund will fund new programs in individual disciplines, creative residency programs that foster collaboration, campus-wide arts and creative projects, visiting residencies by scholars, the fresh integration of technologies into creative projects across the curriculum, and interactive programming and summer workshops that make interdisciplinary partnerships a primary focus.
