by A very profound and meaningful quote from Steven J. Tepper: "Artists and designers have a way of asking questions, expanding our imagination and exploring opportunities. Their ideas and methods provide a powerful lens to address critical issues facing our communities, and they should be fully integrated into public life rather than seen as extra or special or something apart from everyday life.”
by So glad to welcome 3 new (and very talented) faculty members: Yang Wang (art history), Richard Strasser (Chair, Music & Entertainment Industry Studies) and Aleysia Whitmore (music history). Everyone in the college is very excited about the diversification of CAM's programs and curricula. Dr. Wang is a Chinese art specialist (PhD, Ohio State), Dr. Strasser an expert in music business (DMA, Manhattan School of Music), and Dr. Whitmore an ethnomusicologist with expertise in Caribbean and African musics (PhD, Brown).

by The relevancy of this important document is that the science, engineering and medical areas of research and practice are looking to affirm, "the assertion that educational programs that mutually integrate learning experiences in the arts, humanities and STEM lead to improved educational and career outcomes for undergraduate and graduate students." Staff from the Board on Higher Education and Workforce (BHEW), in collaboration with other units of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, will be at CU Denver in November to participate in the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) 2016 National Conference.
