On June 18, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) met at Penn State, where Dean Barbara Korner addressed the need to incentivize interactions between arts and humanities and science researchers. In her remarks, "How the Arts and Humanities Can Assist the APLU Agenda for Public Impact-Focused Research (or PIR)," she discussed three main points: 1) arts and design disciplines can help explode the research questions; 2) the approach of practice-based arts research can inform and engage scientific research; and 3) collaboration can help all of us address the increasing need to define, measure, and reward the impact of research and creative activity.
