  • ArtsEngine and a2ru Receive Federal Arts Research Grant

    ArtsEngine and a2ru will create an evidence-based taxonomy describing the value of arts and design for higher education, communities, and workforce development.

  • Research Remix - A Graduate Research Networking Series

    We invite all U-M graduate students to join the conversation. Attendees are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) in a happy hour-style networking setting following presentations. We hope that through these sessions, graduate students will have an opportunity for cross-disciplinary conversation that will in turn give new perspectives on their work and provide a forum for future work in their chosen fields.
