With 80 full-time and part-time staff and faculty, 670 students majoring in our academic programs, and over 2,000 full seats in courses this fall, the department is having an impact.

On a campus with the most diverse undergraduate student population in the U.S., we are especially proud that the programming presents and exhibits extraordinary perspectives from traditionally under-represented communities in art and design.
