The Hive (Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity)


The purpose of the Rick and Susan Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity (the Hive) is to accelerate the creative development of students across the 5Cs. We do that through Exploration – by creating a safe space to experiment and play, Collaboration – by bringing people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives together to be in the “intellectual muck” together, and through Experiential Learning – thinking by doing. We do all this through a range of activities, both curricular and co-curricular. Our learning activities run the spectrum from short one-hour mini-workshops that may give students a taste of a particular topic area to class activities that allow students to interact with outside partners on real world challenges. Check out our FAQs page for more details about all the work happening at the Hive.
