U-M/NAS Town Hall
A U-M Town Hall on the Integration of Arts, Humanities, & STEMM
The purpose of this town hall will be to discuss the findings and recommendations from the consensus report, The Integration of the Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Higher Education: Branches from the Same Tree, released Spring 2018 by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). The even will also facilitate discussions about strategies for the creation, evaluation, and sustainability of courses and programs that integrate across disciplines. The report represents a culmination of a two-year study conducted by a committee of National Academies members including scientists, engineers, health professionals, humanists, artists, and industry leaders. The report argues that integrating the humanities and arts with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine results in positive learning outcomes that will help students successfully enter the workforce, enrich their lives, and help them become active and informed citizens. Importantly, a range of positive educational outcomes resulted from these methods, including improved written and oral communication skills, teamwork skills, ethical decision-making, critical thinking, and the ability to apply knowledge in real-world settings.
