- About Fine and Performing Arts
Letter from Chair
Welcome to the Fine and Performing Arts at Saint Louis University!
Here you will find an engaged community of artist-scholars who believe in the power of the arts to serve the greater good.
At Saint Louis University, our rigorous liberal arts education is grounded in the Jesuit tradition, which encourages personal growth; helps build strong moral character; and infuses in all members of the community a desire to serve others. Our students come to view the arts as a creative endeavor that enables them to connect to the world around them in a spirit of compassion and understanding.
We are proud of our active and award-winning faculty. These men and women are accomplished performers, scholars, and artists who are also fully committed teachers and mentors. They take a personal interest in the growth and development of each student. Their mentorship makes it possible for students to make connections with the rich arts community in Saint Louis, as well as to develop the values, knowledge and skills that will help them collaborate with others in improving the quality of life for all.
If you are interested in what we have to offer,
then join us in the Fine and Performing Arts at Saint Louis University!
