Our Commitment

Texas A&M University is committed to enriching the learning and working environment for all visitors, students, faculty, and staff by promoting a culture that embraces inclusion, diversity, equity, and accountability.  Diverse perspectives, talents, and identities are vital to accomplishing our mission and living our core values .

Who we are

The visual and performing arts are well-established and respected programs at Texas A&M. Effective September 1, 2022, our Dance Science, Performance Studies, and Visualization programs are joining forces—and over time, significantly expanding—to combine these strengths with world-renowned Aggie expertise in science, engineering, and technology. The result: students will gain the practical, real-world skills and theoretical frameworks needed to become leaders in the highly competitive fine arts world of the 21st century. The School of Performance, Visualization and Fine Arts is for students who love to imagine, create, learn, and grow. It’s for those who love to explore new ways of seeing the world and who understand the magic that can happen when beauty and technology merge. Leading this new program will be faculty and staff with significant experience working at the intersection of theory and practice across the arts, sciences, and technology. They include dancers, directors, computer graphics engineers, composers, art historians, sound technologists—and much more. What else is ahead? One priority is a new, $175 million, state-of-the-art performing arts building that will also be a hub of engagement, creation, and discovery for future generations of Aggies in the fine arts. We can’t wait to get started, and we hope you’ll be part of our journey.
