Research universities should incorporate more "arts making" -- the process of creating works of art -- into their curriculums to help develop "new generations of leaders who are adept in the use of all of their creative cognitive faculties," says a new report from a group of campus leaders convened last year by the University of Michigan. The report, developed by administrators and faculty members from about two dozen of the leading research institutions in the United States, examines what the institutions do now (and what they might do) to integrate such work into their curriculums (and extracurricular activities), and how to advocate for a greater role for such a focus.
