How do post-secondary institutions nurture creativity in their students?

Braden Sykora


My name is Braden Sykora, and I am wrapping up my last year of a professional communications degree at Toronto Metropolitan University. I have always been captivated by the power of creativity and the mechanisms that drive it. Throughout my academic career, I have had the opportunity to explore different aspects of creativity, whether that be through visual design, writing, or multi-media storytelling. My passion for creativity stems from its ability to transform, inspire change, and challenge the status quo. I believe that creativty is a fundamental skill that students should actively work on, and our post-secondary institutions should be leading the charge. With my capstone project, I hope to shed light on the ways in which post-secondary institutions can nurture creativity among their students and create a more vibrant and innovative learning environment.
