Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for joining our quest to build a community of scholars, creators, performers, teachers, learners, and leaders who are able to harness the power of the arts to effectively reflect, record, and influence the diversity of the human experience – to provide a place where all can find their voice, fuel their passion, and ignite their future.

It is said that through art we explore what it is to be human. Art reflects our perfect and imperfect world, provoking thought that provokes people to provoke progress. And it’s through a transformative education in the arts that we can create the next generation of thoughtful, intelligent, and creative leaders who will go on to solve the most critical challenges of the 21st century, preserve the history of the human experience, and inspire the changes that will shape our society’s legacy of progress.

You play a critically important role in our success. You are at the center of this exceptional educational experience and your impact could very well be immeasurable and immortal. Thank you for all the amazing work you do for our students, community, and society!

John W. Scheib
Dean, College of Fine Arts
Associate Vice President for the Arts
