This learning community, located in Sellery Hall and nicknamed "The Studio," is sponsored by the Arts Institute, and it was created for students with interests in dance, theatre, art, literature, film, fashion, music, design, engineering, and computer science. The CADC serves as a multi-layered collective for students to cultivate creative skills and interests through civic engagement, entrepreneurship, invention, collaboration and the performing, visual, and design arts of the 21st century.
