Wonsook Kim College of Fine Arts

Our Priorities

The college has identified five key priorities which are highlighted below.

  • Expanding student opportunity

    Privately funded scholarships enable the College to attract students who are academically gifted and possess superior talent.

  • Attracting and developing top faculty

    Named, endowed professorships and visiting professorships provide the University with the resources to attract top faculty who create and lead world-class academic programs.

  • Replenishing teaching tools

    Equipment and upkeep is essential, as each item is fundamental to effectively teaching courses, producing performances and exhibitions, and providing community education.

  • Empowering through world-class programs

    Our graduates gain a competitive advantage through research, special programs, and fine arts opportunites that extend beyond the classroom. Support for these initiatives helps the College amplify its reputation for excellence and leadership.

  • Sustaining excellence
