The mission of the Boston College Arts Council is to encourage advocacy, enhancement, and visibility for the arts. 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. These artistic pursuits are essential to the formation of the whole person and fundamental to a dynamic university environment.
