About the College


College of the Arts Mission

The University of Florida College of the Arts intends to be a transformative community, responding to and generating paradigmatic shifts in the arts and beyond. We do so by:

  • Embracing the complexity of our evolving human experience and seeking to empower our students, faculty, and staff to shape that experience fearlessly through critical study, creative practice, and provocation.
  • Collaborating effectively with the forces of change.
  • Preparing students to access and unsettle centers of power in a radically changing world.
  • Facilitating an arts education that will position emerging artists and researchers as catalysts for equity on local and global levels.
