The Department of Art views educational achievement as both an individual and collective responsibility. Offering a variety of undergraduate programs in art, the department directs the educational progress of students toward quality research, creative practice, and public service. Art uniquely transforms those who create and those who respond. The department uses the transformative value of art to connect members of the community, enhancing and enriching lives, and making us more conscious of ourselves and others in the world.
In order to achieve this mission, the department has set the following goals:
To challenge students with an intensive curriculum characterized by individualized instruction.
To reward faculty who demonstrate excellence in teaching, scholarly and creative endeavors, and community service.
To maintain facilities and resources that foster opportunities to experience the creation, exhibition, and study of the visual arts.
To provide opportunities for community involvement and broaden public awareness of the visual arts.
