Enhance Interdisciplinary Teaching Through Art
Grow object-based and experiential learning programs. Through collaboration with academic departments, centers, and programs we can use the presentation of art as a jumping-off place for discourse and dialogue across a range of disciplines.
Cultivate Student Engagement
Students are the heart of the university and they should be integrated into all gallery operations including exhibition development, design, collections work, programs, events, and educational outreach.
Make Art Accessible
The University Galleries is an extension of visual arts teaching and learning across campus and beyond the walls of the Segal Gallery, its primary exhibition space. Enhancing a digital presence through virtual tours, video and audio content, collection digitization, upgraded facilities, and accessible space for permanent collections.
