Our Mission

Our vision is for a world where the artist is transformative, essential and engaged.
The Department of Theatre Arts & Dance offers students a home where they can seek their potential and develop their voices as artists, through the study and collaborative making of live performance.

Core Values
Student-centered:  We believe first and foremost in creating experiences that serve our students’ needs and passions.

Rigor:  We believe that performance training can inspire us to the highest standards of professionalism and personal achievement.

Full Engagement:  We believe in making work that has value beyond the dance and theatre world and that directly engages our campus and local community.
