I am delighted to share with you our inaugural edition of “State of the Arts,” which provides a selective – yet extensive — overview of our wide-ranging accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff from July 2018 through 2019. Like me, I’m sure you’ll be amazed by the sheer volume of talent we have here at the University. And this is only a partial accounting.
For a deeper dive into these achievements, this Impact Report provides links inviting you to “read more,” which will connect you to news stories.
In addition to detailing individual accomplishments, this report captures the crucial role we are playing in activating the University of Arizona strategic plan. The items included in “Engaging Arizona,” “Global Impact,” and “Creative Innovations” detail the many ways we are achieving goals outlined in the UA strategic plan, and ensuring that the arts play a central part in realizing the UA’s land-grant mission.
Finally, the extraordinary year we have just completed would not have been possible without the equally extraordinary support provided by our many patrons and donors. Indeed, 2018-19 was a record-setting year for arts philanthropy. None of what we do would be possible without the generous partnership of those who share our belief in the transformative power of the arts for our students, our university, and our communities.
With warmest best wishes,
Dean, College of Fine Arts
Vice President for the Arts
