Arts Integration to Transform Higher Education


In 2018, the National Academies released a consensus report on the Integration of Arts & Humanities with Science, Engineering and Medicine in Higher Education. This was followed by a series of Town Halls with the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities to sustain the conversation on arts integration to transform higher education for an enlightened, better prepared, and more competitive workforce & citizenry. This panel will explore such integrative efforts across a number of Universities.
