The cultivation of creativity is at the core of the university’s work. It is demonstrated by our dedication to innovation, technology commercialization and entrepreneurship. It is characterized by the limitless range of questions being explored through research in all disciplines. It is found in the award-winning literary work of our scholars, university film and theatre productions and in the stunning visual art that our students and faculty create.
Evidence of this commitment can be seen in the outstanding achievements of the Asper School of Business in entrepreneurial competitions around the world. It can also be seen in Project Domino, a major infrastructure redevelopment which will see Taché Hall, currently a residence, reborn into the new home of the Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music and the School of Art. The University of Manitoba is home to the first Bachelor of Jazz Studies in western Canada. Our Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture is the first of its kind in the country. We recognize the importance of performance and creative works to building vibrant communities and celebrating our cultural strength and diversity.
