Mission and Vision
Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry’s mission, simply stated, is to enrich the collaborative atmosphere for innovative research and interdisciplinary endeavors at the University of Arizona and beyond. We value creativity and innovation; collaboration and discovery; and community and public engagement.
Confluencenter supports research seminars and public engagement under several initiatives: Beyond Boundaries; Digital Inquiry, Creative Collaborations, and Show and Tell; and the I-19 project. We also foster emergent and innovative interdisciplinary research on our campus through the following programs: Faculty Collaboration and Innovation Research Grants, Graduate Student Fellowships, a Distinguished Intellectual/Performer Public Lecture Series, as well as collaborative partnerships with the College of Fine Arts, College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences and other units across campus.
