In the News: Creativity Mothership Lands in Toronto

Posted: October 3, 2013

The Center for Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State has been around since 1967—long enough that the idea of studying creativity seems obvious and reasonable to the campus.

A few miles north, not so much. “Even Sheridan [college] Provost Mary Preece said she laughed when she first heard the notion expressed that you can teach people to be creative,” reported Louise Brown in the Toronto Star.

Brown wrote that Sheridan College has had nearly 100 teachers trained by “creative gurus from Buffalo State, whose International Center for Studies in Creativity…had made it an academic mothership in the field.”

Gerard Puccio, professor and chair of creative studies, told Brown that humans have evolved to be creative.
