Creativity reflects the individual mind at its unexpected best.
Creativity fires the synapses and powers the imagination. It is fearless, innovative, and defiant. Creativity respects knowledge but is never constrained by what is known. It enables the mind to imagine what does not yet exist and explore paths to make it happen.
When it soars, creativity fuses intelligence and knowledge with purpose. It thrives at that level across Stanford, pushing every field in surprising directions.
Stanford attracts and cultivates great creative minds. In every discipline, professors inspire students to challenge their own thinking, to connect ideas in fresh ways, and to invent from the ground up.
And, as students develop their own intellectual artistry, they prompt their professors to consider new worlds of possibility.
