The University of Utah College of Fine Arts is committed to shaping the future of classical and contemporary arts through rigorous professional training that balances professional discipline with personal creativity and artistic leadership. The College values a welcoming and engaging learning environment, which combines creative and innovative classroom instruction with opportunities for individual student and faculty experiences in research, writing, performance, creative work and service. This environment is greatly enhanced by interactions and collaborations among individuals with different traditions, cultures, orientations, religious beliefs, economic backgrounds, and racial/ethnic origins.
