Advisory Board

The Fine Arts Advisory Board (FAAB) is composed of community leaders who assist the Dean, faculty, students, and staff of the College of Fine Arts. FAAB members contribute time and treasure to help ensure that the student-centered mission of the College is realized and that the arts are a vital dimension of a University of Utah education. Primarily, FAAB members support scholarships and other programs that enrich the education and training opportunities available to our talented students.
