Initiative on Arts and Humanities
This initiative built on the University’s strengths in the arts and humanities to expand interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts. At the core of this effort was the creation of the University of Minnesota Institute for Advanced Study which was designed to promote and support distinguished, path-breaking research and creative work at the intersection of the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
The initiative also began the process of transforming the arts and humanities at the University and beyond by developing a new interdisciplinary arts and humanities curriculum, supporting new creative processes and works of art, and deepening collaborations with other arts organizations and educators in the community.
