Exploratory

We’re going to create space for people to take chances, mix things up, make some mistakes and come out the better for it. It’s where students and faculty can feel free to explore new ways of solving our most urgent, challenging problems.

Collaborative

Let’s make connections happen – this is about fostering new relationships between people, disciplines, and campuses.

Experiential

Expect to get your hands dirty. Here, making is a form of thinking. Let’s forge deep ties between theory and practice and learn with real projects.

The purpose of the Rick and Susan Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity (the Hive) is to accelerate the creative development of students across the 5Cs. We do that through exploration – by creating a safe space to experiment and play; collaboration – by bringing people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives together to be in the “intellectual muck” together; and experiential learning – thinking by doing. We do all this through a range of activities, both curricular and co-curricular. Our learning activities run the spectrum from short one-hour mini-workshops that give students a taste of a particular topic area to class activities that allow students to interact with outside partners on real world challenges.
