Join the Fine Arts Dean's Leadership Circle

The UNLV College of Fine Arts is wildly ambitious, and there is no more meaningful way to invest in shaping the future of our college than by joining the Dean’s Leadership Circle. For an annual minimum donation of $1,000 or more, you or your company join this group of supporters who enable Dean Nancy Uscher to allocate funds where the need is greatest.

The funds collected allow us to pursue maverick ideas aligned with our strategic plan. To acknowledge and recognize your generous philanthropy and membership, you will have the opportunity to enjoy exclusive experiences hosted by the college. Dean's Leadership Circle donors will also be invited to an annual appreciation reception for their commitment.

I support the Fine Arts Dean's Leadership Circle at UNLV because it allows Dean Uscher the flexibility to help fund students' innovative projects and global experiences. When my schedule allows, I often attend the college's NYC and LA events."

"I have been giving monthly gifts to the Fine Arts Dean's Leadership Circle since 2018 and I will continue to do so. I believe in the work that the dean and the college faculty do every day to educate and inspire fine arts students to be as creative as possible. They can and will change the world."
