NATIONAL ACADEMIES OF SCIENCES, ENGINEERING, AND MEDICINE HOSTS CONVOCATION ON FINDINGS FROM CONSENSUS REPORT ON ARTS AND HUMANITIES INTEGRATION
The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) Presents on Arts and Humanities Integration in STEMM
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) welcomes the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities’ (a2ru) partners and other leaders in education to gather, see successful integrative models, and discuss how to better integrate the arts and humanities with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) in higher education.
NASEM will host 300 leaders in higher education, government, philanthropy, and industry for the daylong convocation, featuring David Skorton, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution and chair of the report committee, Paul Shrivastava, chief sustainability officer from Penn State University, Shannon Jackson, associate vice chancellor for research from the University of California, Berkeley, Sunil Iyengar, director of research for the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. The consensus report recommendations and findings will be used to develop next-steps for higher education and other sector partners. Discussion will be based on a detailed, evidence-based report work to describe the known impact of integrative approaches to teaching and learning in higher education on students’ academic performance and career readiness.
Participants looking for strategic partners to collaborate with to transform higher education for an enlightened, better prepared, and more competitive workforce and citizenry will also attend a showcase of integrative models and see a theatrical dialogue about the benefits of arts and humanities integration.
This meeting is open to the public and will be of interest to those in many walks of life, including education, business, the arts, public service, entrepreneurship—wherever the potential benefits of experience with the arts and humanities may enhance knowledge and performance.
