About the department
Our mission is to develop actors, directors, designers and playwrights, to support theatre through teaching, research and performances, and to foster the appreciation of the value of theatre and fine arts in society.
The department is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community, and to the meaningful consideration and representation of diversity in its work.
All theatre faculty members are currently active in the field as artists, producers, collaborators, and scholars. They are recognized nationally and internationally for their work, and bring that experience and expertise in the studio as teachers.
