Strategic Priority: New Frontiers in the Arts

In the wake of the destruction caused by the flood of 2008, the University has a singular opportunity to re-imagine arts education, presentation, and performance for the 21st century.  In addition to rebuilding our arts facilities—an effort that will extend throughout the 2010-2016 planning period—we will bring together the full range of our arts programs in innovative ways that will generate educational opportunities and stimulate creative work among students, faculty, staff, and visiting artists and scholars. 

The university will consider innovations to enhance interdisciplinary strength in teaching, scholarship, and artistic presentation and performance in the digital arts.
