At Missouri Western State University the arts are an essential part of the University’s mission, with an important role in the academic curriculum, extra-curricular life of students, overall development of all students, and contribution to the general quality of life in the regional community.
The goals of the Arts Society are to provide funding for invaluable learning opportunities, such as:
- Sponsoring visiting artists and Master Classes
- Supporting programs to allow students to show case their talents to our community
- Purchasing specialized equipment to learn technical skills in their artistic field
- Providing opportunities to attend performances, exhibits and other off-campus activities that enhance the student learning experience
Your membership allows our faculty to provide students with enhanced learning experiences beyond the classroom setting. This helps prepare them for a post-graduation career or continuation on to a Master’s degree.
Arts Society members also aim to encourage attendance at performances and exhibitions. They also promote the excellent reputation of the University’s arts programs. With your membership and donations, you play a vital role in continuing the success of both our arts students and arts programs.
Since its beginning, the Arts Society, through memberships, has provided more than $300,000 in funding to support faculty projects and equipment which directly impact education and training of our students.
