The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry convenes scholars from across disciplines, supports relevant interdisciplinary projects, and engages with the public with new knowledge.

Vision

The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry will become recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally as an intellectual hub for creative, interdisciplinary research where the arts, humanities and social sciences intersect all disciplines.

Values

The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry values collaborations and connections, innovation and diverse perspectives, and relevance to human challenges.

Diversity

The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry strives to advance diversity through supporting students, staff, faculty, and scholars who bring diverse and underrepresented perspectives to scholarship, both in the themes they explore in their work and in their own identities.
