WELCOME TO UCONN SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS!
Our institution balances artistic and cultural legacies with the innovative approaches and techniques of contemporary art. In so doing, the School of Fine Arts serves students at the University of Connecticut in both their educational and their professional development. As a cornerstone of our teaching philosophy, the School of Fine Arts is particularly committed to creating an intersection between our educational activity and the various professional industries connected with our disciplines. This approach emphasizes various forms of experiential learning, and includes faculty and institutional engagement with the professional arts world outside the university.
Community Outreach’s mission is to enrich learning at the University of Connecticut through preparing students to be active global citizens by engaging them in service activities that enhance the quality of life for both others and themselves.
Student leaders are an integral part to the success of Community Outreach programs. Students take on leadership roles for all of our service and operational functions. They design and implement activities that meet client needs and recruit, train, and supervise volunteers and work-study employees. The coordinator positions also comprise the Executive Board, which works on projects that support student leaders and Community Outreach as a whole.
