How to Become an a2ru Partner
Currently composed of 30 top-tier institutions, a2ru is committed to transforming research universities in order to ensure the greatest possible institutional support for interdisciplinary research, curricula, programs and creative practice between the arts and other disciplines.
Whereas other organizations focus their energies on the nascence of interdisciplinary inquiry or insufficient funding for the arts, a2ru attends to the critical mass of arts-integrative interdisciplinary efforts that has already
emerged and addresses the next generation of challenges they face. a2ru also enables research universities to make more informed decisions while mitigating risks associated with engaging innovative interdisciplinary scholarship, teaching and creative practice.
We look forward to continuing to serve partner institutions
in this crucial moment by providing unification for the many instances of arts-integrative interdisciplinary research and curricula and the tools to transform the institutionalized norms that determine the success of such efforts and initiatives.
Partnership in the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) remains open
