University Performing Arts Committee

Function and Meeting Information:

Brings outstanding artists to the university who will contribute to the development of an appreciation of the arts. The committee is comprised of a minimum of eight faculty members (four from Fine Arts and Communication), plus one Library representative.

The committee typically meets once a month during long semesters. Committee members also attend and assist at two evening University Arts events each semester. Work is generally spread out over the year, but it is a little heavier during the fall semester, when the arts event series for the following academic year is being finalized. The typical time commitment is about 16 hours per semester.

 

Vision: 

The University Performing Arts Committee promotes artistic excellence through diverse, inspiring and engaging programming for the university and local communities.

Mission:  The University Performing Arts Committee brings outstanding artists to the university to support arts education and raise awareness of the arts by engaging audiences in diverse student-centered events that enrich and enliven the cultural landscape of the campus and surrounding region.
