Community Engagement

CFA Community Engaged Learning, Teaching and Research Value Statement (finalized Spring 2020)

The College of Fine Arts and related affiliate organizations believe the arts inherently foster collaboration, strengthen human connections, and weave together communities. We value how the mutual exchange of shared knowledge between campus and community creates reciprocal benefits for community members and partners, students, faculty, and staff. Our efforts include: offering creative curricula which engage students in opportunities to apply content-specific skills as they work with the community; providing a diverse range of participants access to thoughtful, inclusive, and supportive arts experiences; learning from and with community partners; and supporting faculty and student research which advances our understanding of how the arts impacts our world on a local, national, and global scale. Arts-based community engagement efforts through teaching, learning, research, and experiences are fundamental to the University of Utah’s goal of improving the health and quality of life in our community.
