It is my pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the students, faculty, staff and alumni to the The School of Visual and Performing Arts (SVPA). In our first semester as a newly formed School of Visual and Performing Arts in the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Toledo, we continue our forward movement, beginning with the Presidential Collection Reception and culminating in our multitude of musical, seasonal offerings for the UT community and the broader public.

The School website is designed to assist you with information on our activities, events, and academic programs. The School proudly houses the Departments of Art, Music, and Theatre and Film. The School of Visual and Performing Arts, Department of Art is accredited by the National Schools of Art and Design and the Department of Music, by the National Association of Schools of Music. We offer seven bachelor's degrees, a Bachelor and Master of Art Education and Music Education and a Master of Music Performance. We are located on two campuses, the Main Campus where you will find the Center for Performing Arts and the director’s office. The Museum Campus features the Center for the Visual Arts, designed by internationally-renowned architect, Frank O. Gehry. 

Both faculty and students across the school are practicing artists and scholars who regularly perform, present and exhibit locally, regionally, and nationally. Faculty scholars and artists are internationally active as well. The SVPA shares rewarding partnerships with the Toledo Museum of Art, The Toledo Symphony Orchestra, The Arts Commission, and the Glacity Theatre Collective, as well as other colleges and departments throughout the University.  

We are an active and highly engaged School and it is a honor to serve the School of Visual and Performing Arts as Director. I hope to see you at our upcoming SVPA sponsored offerings, whether you are looking for an exhibition, lecture series, theatrical production, film series or concert. Please join us.
