Diversity and Inclusion

The University of Arizona College of Fine Arts recognizes and embraces diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives because they are the cornerstones of creative expression and cultural production. Diversity includes differences of ability, age, color, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, genetic information, immigration status, national origin, occupation, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and veteran status. More than a short-term project or the effort of a single office, this comprehensive approach engages everyone in complete cultural and institutional transformation by embedding and practicing IE in every endeavor, aspect and level of the College.

These values mandate:

  • Continual transformation of our curricula and cultivation of an inclusive classroom experience
  • Supporting and promoting diverse programming that represents the work of artists, and depicts subjects representing a wide variety of identities and perspectives
  • Connecting with our communities – local, national, and international
  • Promoting cultural equity in the arts sector

We seek to drive the dialogue of arts and arts education regionally and globally. Inclusive excellence (IE) is the engine that drives the value and practice of diversity and inclusiveness at the University of Arizona. At the center of IE is the recognition and acceptance of the talents, world views, perceptions, cultures and skills that diverse communities bring to the educational enterprise that can be harnessed to prepare students for leading, living and working in a diverse world. Native American, LGBTQ, Asian American, White, Latino, African American, women, veterans, people with disabilities, Jewish, Christian, International, Muslim, fraternities and sororities, athletes, alumni and many other communities of students, staff and faculty contribute positively to all dimensions of the university. Every individual and group at UA is a critical component of and contributor to diversity and inclusiveness. Making a difference in diversity at the University of Arizona is the essence of inclusive excellence.

Presented by Podium Pictures, in association with CBS Sports, this definitive documentary by Emmy Award-winning Director Brett Rapkin celebrates the legendary Coach Lute Olson on the 25th Anniversary of the 1997 National Championship.

β€œNot long after I showed up in Tucson as a 17-year-old freshman, I got to witness Lute lead the 1997 Cats to the promised land: a National Championship,” said Rapkin, who studied film at TFTV. β€œIt is truly an honor to have the chance to help tell this story.”

β€œI’m thrilled to be a member of the team making a film celebrating Coach O’s life and legacy,” said Jason Terry, executive producer and member of the 1997 championship team. β€œThis is also a special opportunity to allow the coaches, fans, players and families that he inspired along the way to tell their own stories.”
