Arts Dean's Fund for Excellence and Equity

The Arts Division is committed to serving the changing demographic of our student body, who represent the future of California. We are already building the "University of the Future" which will help future generations as they claim their education. Through the Arts Dean's Fund for Excellence and Equity, we can work towards this goal by:

  • Creating an inclusive curriculum by providing seed funding for innovative inclusive programs and encouraging the creation and dissemination of new work
  • Improving the pipeline for diverse workers in the arts, by offering opportunities for professional development for our students

We believe there is no true excellence without equity, no true innovation without inclusion. Please join us by making a gift today.

Arts Professional Pathways

The Arts Professional Pathways offers direct engagement with the creative and industry professionals to demystify and promote careers in the Arts. We offer students a roadmap for pursuing their dreams by providing advising, mentorship, networking and internships with major arts and entertainment institutions. We also provide matching scholarship funds to ensure internships can be accessible to all students regardless of their family wealth. Together we can break down the barriers that keep underrepresented students from taking part in the creative economy and diversify the next generation of artists and creative professionals. Help us launch new careers today.
