CVPA Diversity Council

The College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) believes that equity, access and inclusion are moral imperatives and artistic obligations.  Diversity—in the stories we represent, the students we serve, and the audiences we engage—is vital for the health and relevance of contemporary arts practice. CVPA, therefore, welcomes diversity of perspective, ethnicity, race, religion, socio-economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ability. The CVPA Diversity Council promotes diversity among the faculty, staff, students, and visiting artists.
