Mission Statement

The primary mission of the School of Art is to provide a comprehensive and superior professional education in the study and practice of the visual arts that will complement university studies in the liberal arts, humanities, and sciences.

The School of Art is committed to excellence in curricula and instruction; to liberal education as a necessary ground and complement to the development of perception, intellect, and imagination in the visual arts; to knowledge of art history as a basis for aesthetic sensibility and personal expression; to development of skills in traditional and experimental media; and to the practice and communication of the unity of form, meaning, and value in art and craft.
