What is Creative Minds in Action?

Welcome to Creative Minds in Action, a new web publication of the College of Arts and Sciences at Quinnipiac University. Envisioned, produced, and overseen by the faculty, administration, staff, alumni, and students of the College itself, Creative Minds in Action will seek to provide a forum to explore the ideas and activities of all the members of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Why Creative Minds In Action?

The College of Arts and Sciences at Quinnipiac consists of a diverse community of learners and scholars. We are all, as an academic community, involved in the life of the mind. From the contemplation of ancient philosophical ideas or a contemporary novel to participation in the most recent political, social, and intellectual debates, we engage in thought directed toward a deeper understanding ourselves and the past, present, and future of our world. But the life of the mind is just the beginning, and contemplation and debate are only a stepping off point. We also engage in artistic ventures, research, grantsmanship and publication, as well as the public expression of our views.

Our creative minds in action will be the focus of this site. CMA will bring us in together and make visible the activity that takes place across the College in science and computer labs, in artists’ studios and theaters, in seminar rooms, in service learning or community service projects, in library archives, and in scholarly journals—and beyond. This site will keep us connected, informed, and engaged. It will provide a place for our community to meet, interact, learn from, and challenge one another.

Who is CMA?

This site is produced through the efforts of members of the College and Arts and Sciences. An editorial board is responsible for much of its content, but this is intended to be a forum through which everyone can express themselves. We welcome contributions from all those interested in our community, whether it be an extended post on a particular theme or topic or a quick reply to one of the posts on the site. Read, enjoy, and participate. Join in and be a Creative Mind in Action.
