College Of Arts University Of Arts

Our academics and students are diverse, dynamic, innovative and international in their outlook. During your time studying in the School of Arts, you’ll not only have the academic grounding to thrive as a graduate, but you’ll also learn about yourself as a creative. “I’m incredibly excited that UArts has the opportunity to not only address sexual violence prevention and education at our institution but also to contribute to the narrative,” said Lauri Millot, director of Title IX, equity and compliance at University of the Arts. The funding will address a pressing need as students become reacquainted with life on campus following the social isolation spurred by COVID-19 and the limited number of educational events addressing sexual assault, consent and healthy relationships available during the pandemic. We connect the performing, visual, and communication arts and design in both the classroom and the community, expanding artistic possibilities, outcomes, and lives through creative collaboration.

AUArts offers small classes, more subject areas than most design schools, and the flexibility to create a curriculum as unique as you are. Chelsea College of Arts and the London College of Fashion share the “Creative Learning in Practice Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning”. The centre is funded by the British government in recognition of the two colleges’ results in developing student learning.

Since 2016, Gov. Wolf’s administration has awarded over 190 It’s On Us PA grants totaling nearly $4 million to more than 75 postsecondary institutions, including public and private two-year and four-year colleges and universities. You can choose a career from a range of sectors with our variety ofundergraduateandpostgraduateprogrammes, including architecture and the built environment, design, English and journalism, film and media, fine and performing arts, and history and heritage. Through these residencies, a wide range of creative disciplines will intersect and cross-pollinate, reflecting UArts’ commitment to interdisciplinary arts education.

Two of the recently produced images have already been accepted into exhibitions and need to be printed and framed. But a more involved next step for Transcending Love is the production of a special edition portfolio of 12 portraits and stories. The grant will allow Proud to create a 16” x 20” portfolio housed in a custom-designed clamshell box, produced in an edition of 10. It will be made available to universities, colleges, museums and teaching institutions for the purpose of education.

  • On the retirement of William Stubbs as rector in 2001, Sir Michael Bichard was appointed and encouraged the London Institute to apply for university status.

  • Through funding provided by the President’s Fund for Excellence, the Grants for Creative Research & Innovation program is able to disburse $53,000 to realize the 11 projects that comprise staff and faculty members’ imaginative, innovative ideas and advance the creativity of the UArts community.

School of Dance Artist-in-Residence Courtney Henry will utilize the Creative Research & Innovation grant to deepen her personal dance practice and develop a radical ballet syllabus by undertaking an experiential collaboration with interdisciplinary artist Jaamil Kosoko. The grant recipients will conduct research, travel and execute their projects in the coming months, with the intent of sharing or reporting on their projects and discoveries in the fall. Below is the staff and faculty work that has received funding from the President’s Fund for Excellence. Public universities grant degrees under the authority of an Act of the Legislative Assembly or a Royal Charter. In 2010, Tom Traves, then president of Dalhousie University in Halifax, conducted a confidential review of how OCAD was managed. He found that the number of senior faculty and administrators was excessive.

The London College of Printing became part of the London Institute in 1986. The Chelsea School of Art originated as part of the South-Western Polytechnic, which opened in 1895 and in 1922 became the Chelsea Polytechnic. In 1957 the science department of the polytechnic was renamed Chelsea College of Science and Technology; the School of Art became independent from it at that time, and merged with the Regent Street Polytechnic School of Art to create the Chelsea School of Art in 1964.

Adjunct Professor of Photography B. Proud launched the photographic series Transcending Love in 2017 to center LGBTQIA+ couples in an extension of her 2009 First Comes Love Project, partially funded by UArts. The series comprises portraiture of LGBTQIA+ couples, with the goal of “opening hearts and minds to couples in the transgender community and confronting the threats to their human rights,” Proud says. She will use support from the grant to expand the current series and produce a limited-edition portfolio to be shared with universities, museums and teaching institutions.
