Meet the people and resources you'll find inside the Weitz Center for Creativity.

Creativity crosses the boundaries of all academic disciplines. To encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and a continuous cross-pollination of ideas, the Weitz Center houses a diverse mix of faculty, staff, and academic initiatives.
