Creative inquiry may emerge from...

  • a class assignment or project.
  • off-campus projects or internships.
  • student-faculty collaborative research or creative projects.
  • independent student research or creative projects.
  • the work of extra-curricular student organizations.

The definition of creative inquiry varies by discipline; it includes...

  • asking a question that has not been asked before.
  • attempting to fill a gap in knowledge, or to create new knowledge, information, art, or expression.
  • a process or product that requires the student to add ideas or imagination of their own.
  • a project that is shaped by choices the student made independently.
  • critical reflection.
