The following key principles should be considered to implement visions for changes in academic fields effectively:

1. Interdisciplinary Programs: The new university should establish and promote interdisciplinary programs which assemble art, technology, and social sciences faculties. Students and researchers can explore new perspectives and innovative solutions to address complex challenges by encouraging cross-disciplinary collaborations.

2. Collaborative Spaces: The collaboration and interaction between students and faculty from diverse disciplines should be encouraged by the establishment of spaces (both physical and virtual). These spaces can serve as centers for creativity, invention, and knowledge sharing, promoting a culture of innovation.

3. Research Initiatives: Different research initiatives focusing on the union of art, technology, and society should be facilitated by the university. The university can drive impactful solutions addressing real-world problems through investment in multidisciplinary projects.

4. Emphasize Experiential Learning: Upgrading the curriculum through integration of experiential learning can provide students with vital exposure to the intersection of art, technology, and society. The students‘ understanding and preparedness for global challenges can be enhanced by projects, internships, or collaboration with external partners.

5. Inclusive and Diverse Communities: Generating an inclusive environment which welcomes individuals from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and disciplines nurtures creativity and improves the exchange of ideas. The university should actively pursue the promotion of diversity, as well as ensuring equitable opportunities for all. 6. Technology: The university should adopt cutting-edge technologies to improve the learning experience and research capabilities. Machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other emerging tools should be utilized for collaboration across disciplines.

7. Critical Thinking: It should encourage students and researchers to think critically and reflect on their work’s ethical, social, and cultural implications as it will foster innovation and empower future leaders to make informed decisions. The new university can build an inspiring and forward-looking academic environment through these principles and strategies, by harnessing the power of interdisciplinarity in collaboration between art, technology as well as society. It will equip the graduates with relevant skills and attitude to address global challenges and steer positive change.
