A2RU ARTICLE IN HUFF POST (CUDenver conference mentioned)

“One organization helping reinvent the university using the arts, is a2ru. It’s a funny name for an organization doing serious work: It’s the “Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities” but those in the know actually prefer a2ru.

a2ru is one of the best places to understand the power of the arts and arts integration and to see how over 50 universities are integrating the arts into higher education. I emphasize that this is not art for arts sake. It is integrating the arts, or teaching all the disciplines through the arts, thus making any subject—whether it’s math or science or whatever—engaging and memorable.”

 

This is really good article on A2RU and it mentions the power of arts integration in education.  It also speaks about the national conference that will be held on our campus from November 03 to 05, 2016.  Link is below.
