The arts have the unique ability to teach and communicate in ways that other intellectual activities cannot. Visually, musically and physically, they challenge our thinking, touch our hearts and connect us through collaborative action. Whether it is reflecting upon the impact of the arts in the lecture halls and museums, or participating in the very act of creation in our rehearsal rooms, studios and stages, artistic activities exercise the critical and aesthetic thought processes that we value so highly in our students. Participation in art and performance promotes a sense of community and empathy with the human condition that connects us both culturally and spiritually. These artistic pursuits are essential to the formation of the whole person and fundamental to a dynamic university environment.
