Mission Statement

The Department of Fine & Performing Arts seeks to expose students to the arts including its history, cultural relevance and societal influence with particular emphasis on the works by artists and musicians of color. We introduce students to a bevy of artists (both visual and performing) who are local and/or internationally known craftspeople. This department is uniquely positioned to provide hands-on experience in art appreciation and musical development in a university known for its excellence and attention to fine detail. The members of the department firmly believe the arts are an integral part of students’ educational experience and prepare them for careers either in the arts or in areas influenced (directly or indirectly) by the arts. Our degree programs allow students to graduate and utilize their talents to serve as ambassadors that enrich the lives of others in service to their respective communities, their workplaces and the world at large.
