Create Collaboratively

the HIVE …

helps students increase their creative capacity and practice collaboration across differences. Partnering with faculty, the Hive provides learning experiences that move students through ambiguous real-world challenges toward creative solutions. The Hive provides a space to experiment and play and fosters collaboration by bringing people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives together. We are helping transform the way liberal arts education is delivered.


  • we live in an ambiguous world, where the rate of change is accelerating, and where big problems do not have a single right answer
  • interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches are crucial for the future of liberal arts education
  • to thrive in this world, young people need methods inspired by human-centered design and design thinking to reach across differences, understand needs, and replace assumptions with insights

The Hive’s work is focused on cultivating the enormous creative capacity and collaborative skills of students, and helping lead a renaissance of the liberal arts for the educational experience of students now and in the future.
