Department Mission

We are committed to building a comprehensive and substantive foundation of skills and knowledge within and across the disciplines, to cultivating each student’s individual creative spirit and voice, and to nurturing respect for humanistic and multi-aesthetic values and creative processes. We value the richness of diversity: cultural, academic, and individual and are continually seeking ways to broaden our connections across the university, to promote service to our regional community, and to enrich the lives of our students who are at the heart of our teaching and learning.
