Ian Baucom, new dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.
We have this system that we call STEM, to teach sciences and technologies. Now there are a lot of schools who are adding an “A” and calling it “STEAM.” “A” is for arts. I think it’s incredibly important because while math, science and technology are hugely important, if we leave behind a young person’s imagination or creativity, I think they won’t have as full a life.
