Values Statement

In 2018-19, the students, faculty and staff of the Department of Theatre Arts affirmed this statement of our values.


We are a community of lifelong learners committed to making theatre that reflects, embraces, and enriches the human experience,
and initiates positive change in all aspects of ourselves and in the world around us.

We appreciate that we are complex individuals with different identities, backgrounds, and abilities, and we as community take steps to eradicate hate and eliminate bias.

We value equity, diversity, & inclusion, empathy, civility, and collaboration, a growth mindset, and risk-taking within creative endeavors.

We uphold these values by listening and communicating,
by holding ourselves accountable for our words and actions, and by welcoming and supporting all who join us.
