“The current work of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) maps arts-integrative learning, contextually examines arts research developments, explores the value-added results of campus collaborations, and connects multiple stakeholders to advance a more complete national agenda linking the arts and other disciplines in higher education. The plan herein provides a detailed blueprint to: increase a2ru’s effectiveness by more deliberately building the case for external audiences; more effectively support student work and faculty collaborations; and guide a robust research agenda through 2020. These will be the agenda items that shape the next four years of a2ru’s work”
The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) is a partnership of over thirty institutions committed to ensuring the greatest possible institutional support for the full spectrum of arts and arts-integrative research, curricula, programs, and creative practice for the benefit of all students and faculty at research universities and the communities they serve.
