Office of the Dean

Welcome to a World of Great Experiences!

Meet the Dean.


The College of Fine and Performing Arts is dedicated to providing experiences that will change your life—experiences that encompass professional study, student learning, community involvement and participation, and those that produce art.

The college is dedicated to providing intentional experiences and, more importantly, opening up the unplanned pathway of personal discovery.

Student learning and discovery is the core to providing both these intentional and personal experiences. Our diverse faculty academy provides the examples through each faculty member’s practice of the continual arts experience. For the College and its community, the Arts are not merely experienced, they are created.

Please direct your attention to the various schools, departments and centers and performance and exhibition venues—the home to great experiences—to continue your own discovery of our great experiences.

Dr. Robert Kehrberg
Founding Dean of the College of Fine and Performing Arts
