Creative Campus!

The Creative Campus Initiative is thriving at the Mount.

A national movement of promoting creativity initiatives on college campuses has grown over the past decade. This increase is in partly due to employers seeking out candidates who think innovatively to meet the challenges of working in the 21st century.

Creativity has also been given significant attention by educators, because it allows students to take abstract class material and make it "real." Creativity initiatives allow students to explore material that may be outside of their majors, or not covered in classes.

Creative Campus embraces all disciplines

Fostering creativity does not mean just focusing on the arts. All fields of study can benefit greatly from a creativity initiative. Mount students from all majors applying for the Summer Undergraduate Reasearch Experience (SURE) program are busy creating and developing proposals for their intended research topic. The main focus is on encouraging and inspiring creativity and innovation in all forms.

Your Creative Campus

From music to theatre to poetry to independent research on campus, the creative spirit is thriving at the Mount. We celebrate our students, their talents, and their skill and imagination as we welcome new ideas and initiatives. Check out the list of events, readings, drives, and creative outlets on the Events list, just to the right of this screen. And keep thinking creatively!
