Vision

To graduate a well-educated, technologically sophisticated, ethnically diverse student body that will think critically about a changing world and participate in research and creative activities that contribute to the social, artistic, cultural, economic, environmental, and technological dimensions of the 21st century.

Mission

The mission of the Department of Art and Art History is to provide a sanctuary for the development of new visions, ideas, and techniques. We prepare students to meet the many challenges that exist today in the fields of Fine Arts, Art History, and Art Education. Our communal atmosphere encourages artistic camaraderie, engendering trust, and a climate conducive to intellectual and aesthetic growth.
