Innovation and creative expression are hallmarks of the College of Fine Arts. Guiding developing artists and designers, performers, scholars, therapists, media specialists, and teachers is embedded in the College's values and mission. In addition to artistic expression, graduates impact culture and quality of life in careers based on technical expertise and through corporate partnerships.
Students expand and share their inherent abilities with a liberal arts education, emphasizing vision and critical thinking. Awareness sparks action as students apply their talent in opportunities that reach people at every life stage. The arts empower students to problem-solve, enrich communities, and engage as active citizens.
A College of Fine Arts education goes beyond mastering vocal, instrumental, dance, or visual art and design skills. Music therapy graduates bring healing to those with physical and mental health challenges, as well as engage senior citizens. In contrast, arts technology alumni use digital equipment and tools to design interactive media and Web animation.
Regardless of the path pursued, all students rely on well-equipped spaces to reach their potential. Faculty committed to individualized instruction work on stages, in studios, and in high-tech labs that require continual investment to support relevant programs.
This Giving Tuesday, we seek funding to support the College of Fine Arts’ excellent students and programs. Your gift will make a significant impact on the lives and future of our students and the community.
