Dean’s Welcome

  • Curt Scheib, Dean, IUP College of Fine ArtsThe IUP College of Fine Arts is a place of transformation. Here, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty who are fully engaged in their fields, are passionate about their craft, and seek to actively guide and inspire students to fulfill their creative potential, preparing them for a life in the arts. 

    Students are given the tools and ways of thinking to fully develop as artists, performers, educators, scholars, and practitioners—fully engaged and confident of the power of the arts as agents of change in their communities and the world.

    I invite you to explore our academic programs and the many offering of our departments of Art and Design; Music; and Theatre, Dance, and Performance. The college also sponsors many guest artists, exhibitions, professional productions, and renowned professional performances through the Lively Arts and the University Museum, and in its excellent facilities for the visual and performing arts. 

    Come for a visit, meet our outstanding faculty, tour our excellent facilities, and explore the many opportunities that await. 

    Yours in the arts, 

    Curt Scheib
    Dean, College of Fine Arts
