Mission

The School of Arts & Sciences and the University of Richmond support an excellent and integrated program in the visual and performing arts.
 
We recruit serious visual and performing arts students who want to pursue their talents in the context of a liberal arts education.
 
We support an innovative curriculum that fosters high-level capabilities among students who specialize in the arts, and encourages participation in the arts for all students.
 
We emphasize mentoring of undergraduates at the heart of this education.
 
We support creative and scholarly research by faculty, guest artists and scholars, and students; high quality programs and presentations by the Modlin Center and University Museums; and collaborative projects among departments and the entire University.
 
We support first-rate academic, performance, and exhibition opportunities to nurture arts awareness campus wide and in our local region.
 
We partner with vibrant arts, music, and museum communities in the City of Richmond and the region.
