Thank you for choosing the College of Visual and Performing Arts on #JMUGivingDay!
Dukes 2gether are making a difference!
Students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) are passionate about the arts and the world around them. They engage in practical experiences that tackle important issues in today’s society to inspire dialogue, new thinking, and change.
Your gift will help the CVPA to recruit and retain thoughtful, talented artists who participate in creative endeavors that foster intercultural understanding—and transform lives.
Working with award-winning faculty members, students use design thinking to make masks during a pandemic, dance to reach Parkinson’s patients, theatre to compel political change, and music education to uplift the next generation. Through our work 2gether, we encourage students to “Create Your Path” in the arts and beyond.
Your gift today makes a difference to current and future art students—and to the world around you.
