Our Husky Compact

Think Creatively and Critically

Art students

New problems and challenges arise every day. The ability to think creatively and critically is core to overcoming many of those problems and challenges. A commitment to this dimension of Our Husky Compact gives our students the skills to:

  • Demonstrate intellectual inquiry and curiosity characterized by innovation, divergent thinking, and risk taking.
  • Reason analytically
  • Find, evaluate, and communicate substantive information
  • Engage multiple perspectives
  • Synthesize existing ideas, images, or expertise in new combinations to achieve imaginative solutions
  • Appreciate the intrinsic value of creative pursuits
