About the Department and/or College

We in the School of Theatre and Dance recognize the continuous, intentional, and ever-evolving work of addressing historical and systemic injustice.

Recently coordinated efforts within the School have centered on diversifying and supporting faculty, transforming curricula, and reforming production practices, all with the goal of sustaining a place for artists, scholars, and educators to reach their full potential. As a community in transition that stands against racism, xenophobia, homophobia, sexism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, classism, ableism, hate speech, ageism, and actions that silence, threaten, marginalize, or degrade others, we invite individuals who will bring their lived and creative experiences to our program to join us on this journey.
