The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) is building a digital repository that will house materials from the 2014 a2ru National Conference at ISU. The contents of the a2ru Digital Repository will be available to a2ru partners and the public.
Conference participants have received information on how to submit their presentation materials which are due on December 14th. Videos and other resources such as transcriptions of the plenary sessions from the conference will also be added to the repository.
Nearly 250 attendees converged on Ames Iowa on November 5-8 for the 2014 a2ru National Conference at ISU. Presidents, provosts, deans, faculty, and students from leading research universities across the country took part in an historic event that included 50 panel discussions focused on the implementation of arts integrated interdisciplinarity in higher education.
Each day closed with a plenary session that addressed successful implementation of arts-integrated interdisciplinary initiatives in changing institutional frameworks at American universities. The program for the 2014 a2ru National Conference at ISU can be accessed here.
