The Department of Theatre & Dance is committed to socially-engaged practices and programs that strengthen both our social fabric and ourselves. We believe theatre and dance are powerful tools, ones that allow us to reimagine, reclaim, resist, remake and simply celebrate our aliveness together.


We see ourselves not as ambassadors but as collaborators in the co-construction of mutually-beneficial programming and scholarship. We aim to work with our communities in ways that respect everyone’s knowledge, resources, and expertise.
