Creative B program returns to UF, highlights cultural enrichment during Summer B semester

Introduced by Academic Affairs (Office of the Provost) in 2010, Creative B is a summer program at the University of Florida that consolidates the collective resources and talents of the many creative programs at UF. Creative B participants may choose from unique courses with an artistic edge, a variety of live cultural performances and a wide range of interdisciplinary summer activities.
"We look forward to Creative B enlivening the campus atmosphere during the summer B term through unique and innovative programming," said Provost Joe Glover.
Partnering units and departments from throughout the University of Florida (College of Fine Arts, Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, Performing Arts, Florida Museum of Natural History, College of Journalism and Communications, Student Affairs, Smathers Libraries, Gator Nights, Multicultural and Diversity Affairs, IDEAL and more) have contributed a diverse slate of interdisciplinary programs and even some new courses that emphasize creativity and creative skill-building.
"These experiences will be enjoyed by all, but they are a particularly fitting welcome for our new freshman class and students and families visiting during Preview," said College of Fine Arts Dean Lucinda Lavelli. "This is an exciting way to give everyone a taste of the creativity and collaboration that is part of the Gator Nation."
