As a community of artists, we model and promote positive actions to create safe environments for all people. The Visual and Performing Arts Department affirms the commitment to be active in: the creation of a welcoming community; the defense of the rights of all; and a continuing and unwavering condemnation for all forms of bias and oppression.
