Creative Inquiry: A Platform for Match-Making in Research
In 2005, the Creative Inquiry Task Force at Clemson was assembled to facilitate creative endeavors through student and faculty collaboration. The Creative Inquiry program has supported over 1000 projects through funding, conference organization, and matching student interests with faculty and graduate students. The university-wide platform centered on creative endeavors has been successful for undergraduate students by allowing students to develop a competitive resume while promoting curiosity and critical thinking. The program also offers graduate students the chance to bolster their research productivity and laboratory management skills through collaborating with faculty and mentoring undergraduate students. This workshop will focus on the impact of Creative Inquiry for psychology faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students as well as implementation strategies for other universities. The success of the Creative Inquiry program at Clemson suggests that other institutions could develop a similar platform for undergraduate and graduate students to connect creative interests.
