Performing Arts and Cultural Initiatives

The University actively pursues the objective of creating opportunities and situations for developing and expressing artistic abilities.
Students, along with faculty and staff, have been able to express their creativity and skills for many years, to be appreciated by the entire community at performances and concerts that are open to the public.
