In the wake of the white-supremacist terrorism of August 11-13, we wish to highlight and paraphrase some of the comments of Ian Baucom, Dean of Arts and Sciences:
Be assured that the Art Department remains a space where all can pursue the dialogue that counters the lies of racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, and nativism.
We are prepared to stand up for and support those who have been singled out as targets for hatred. The courage of free thought opposing cowardice and bigotry endures and persists here despite violence.

Arts Administration


Arts Administration is an interdisciplinary field which studies the practical management of arts, cultural, and entertainment organizations and businesses. As of August 2015, the pilot initiative in Arts Administration has repositioned itself within the College of Arts and Sciences. As it has all along, Arts Administration combines the practical skills of artistic and cultural management and those of community building with more theoretical ideas of the role of the arts in society. In addition, we will soon be taking on an exciting initiative in Design Thinking, so revisit this site often for developing news.
