Act of Determination 3 -- Creating a Development Plan to Endow Masters Programs in the Arts

Action Steps:
  • To raise $3 million to endow a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Film and Digital Media to supplant the existing MA program. The Dean’s Office will develop a fundraising strategy by Fall 2014 targeted at donors who have voiced an interest in supporting this program and for creating a Department of Film and Digital Media to be housed in the Arts District.
  • To raise $3 million to endow the existing MFA in the Department of Theatre Arts that will be housed in the Arts District. The Dean’s Office and the Directors of Development in Arts & Sciences will create a fundraising strategy by Spring 2015 targeted at current donors who have voiced an interest in supporting this program.
  • To assess the possibility of a fundraising initiative for an MFA program in the Department of Art.
