Arts and Technology, Together

Missouri S&T Center for Arts and Innovation

The Kummer Centers, along with the College of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, provide a very special kind of synergy between Arts and Innovation.

- Karen Head  

World-class universities have world-class arts programs. Why? Because the arts are the foundation for innovative thinking and risk-taking necessary for transformational change. S&T’s history of “boots on the ground” approaches to solving problems will be at the heart of its future as an innovation hub. From an educational standpoint, arts-related experiences change the way students see and function in the world. S&T is a university with its roots in the community, and the responsibility of maintaining that history is critical to its future. The arts and innovation center is committed to supporting the community through creative outreach programming designed to support education, entrepreneurship, and economic development.
