The Creative Research Center of Montclair State University takes pleasure in spotlighting ideas, expressions and writings from students, faculty and outside contributors, serving as incubator, curator, editor — and stimulus.

We do not make proprietary knowledge-claims; rather, we aim to take in and disseminate information and knowledge energetically – to mediate — in the fullest meaning of that word.

The long-term growth intention of the CRC is to create a public-private funding partnership, especially valued during constrained economic times when it is even more imperative that our cultural patrimony be respected and commemorated.

The Creative Research Center welcomes your support.
