Mark your calendars and plan to join us at the Creative Problem Solving Institute from June 19 to 24, 2018, at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York! In the meantime, check out the CPSI 2017 Program Guide for a sample of the types of programs and sessions you can expect.

Hosted by the Creative Education Foundation (CEF), CPSI focuses on deliberate creativity, innovation and change leadership. CPSI (“SIP-see”) teaches practical creativity skills and tools in an inspiring learning environment.


“CPSI serves as a haven for business leaders, educators, researchers and consultants who yearn to stretch the limits of their understanding and practice of creative behavior.”
– Teresa Amabile, Professor and Director of Research, Harvard Business School


No matter your experience level with applying deliberate creativity, you will find what you need at CPSI, whether you are a professional, a teacher, a student or a life-long learner. Professionals will learn the principles of Creative Problem Solving (CPS) to grapple with complex business issues. Teachers will roll up their sleeves to learn how to bring creativity into the classroom. Everyone can select from an array of dynamic, hands-on creativity workshops – ranging from tools and techniques, personal growth, current topics and research, strategic innovation, and the arts.

World-class facilitators create an active-learning environment at CPSI, focused on helping you move ideas into action. Prepare to be transformed, inspired and empowered by the power of deliberate creativity. The Creative Problem Solving Institute is THE creativity conference you don’t want to miss!
