LYNX Camp Mission
Our mission is to effect change by preparing high school students to successfully pursue their artistic passions through higher education.
Our students are exposed to the skills they need to foster creativity, learning, and community in a higher education environment in order to reach their full academic potential.
LYNX Camp Values
Academic and artistic rigor, creativity and innovation are bedrock principles of the College of Arts & Media community and the cornerstone of how we define excellence. As champions of creative excellence in art making and artistic expression we support risk-taking, intellectual freedom and social responsibility.
We believe in a culture of shared discovery. Our students learn by doing, and as emerging peers, are important contributors to the knowledge exchange. We value rigorous investigation, critical thinking, diversity, collaboration and invention.
We are committed to learning both inside and outside the classroom. The accessibility, diversity and cultural energy of Denver make the College of Arts & Media a better place to teach, work and learn. We strive to offer reciprocal experiences to the citizens of this great city and pay it forward by extending our reach and impact in the global community.
