The Arts in Education program, now in its 9th year, provides valuable shared experiences for College of Education students, faculty, and staff members that increase our collective knowledge about and appreciation for the arts. The program was developed by the Student Advisory Forum and is based on the premise that all educators need to be in touch with the arts.

Through the program, College community members can enter a lottery to win tickets to these artistic performances throughout the 2008-09 academic year:

  • Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, October 9
  • Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters performed by the Dallas Children’s Theatre, October 26
  • Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, November 6
