The Fund for Excellence in an annual fund that provides the College of Performing Arts with the resources to ensure our dance, music and theatre department’s programs deliver the highest quality hands-on training and education to our students.
Gifts to the Fund for Excellence make the College of Performing Arts stronger by providing our students with more training, more experience and more professional opportunities. Our students graduate ready to launch their careers in the performing arts and performing arts education.
A gift to the Fund directly supports these College priorities:
- All of the costs associated with producing 200-plus live performances of dance, music, theatre and opera each year
- Fees for the recruitment of professional visiting artists for technique classes, master classes and other learning experiences
- Scholarships and travel funds for our renowned student touring ensembles and conferences for our students to present their scholarly work
You can direct your support to dance, music, theatre, opera, and student research and scholarship with a gift to the Fund for Excellence. Every gift to the Fund for Excellence matters, every year. Please show your personal commitment to the College of Performing Arts, its students and its programs with your gift to the Fund for Excellence.
