Support The Arts at USF!

The Arts at USF is a hub for artists, designers, architects, performers and community members to think critically, make powerfully, and engage thoughtfully.  Combined with USF’s social justice mission, the Arts at USF allows students to become artist citizens - developing as a whole person in relationship to their community, context, and the environment.  

Our vibrant community includes: 

  • The Department of Art + Architecture 
    • Architecture & Community Design
    • Art History &  Museum Studies
    • Design
    • Fine Arts
  • Performing Arts & Social Justice Department 
    • Dance
    • Music
    • Theater
    • Tech + Design Certificate
  • Museum Studies Graduate Program 
  • The Thacher Gallery
  • Presentation Theater 
  • Ensembles, performance groups, and student clubs
  • Interdisciplinary work on campus, in the community, and around the world.  

The arts are at the heart of the Jesuit mission, and the heart of USF.  

We need your help to take the Arts at USF to the next level. We had a really successful campaign last year and we're trying to double our goal. Your gift last year directly benefited current Arts students by providing mini grants for senior theses, admission costs, field trips, other special events, and more. 

We hope to expand on that with additional funds raised this year. Your support will also help fund guest artists and lectures, more field trips, student projects and productions, exhibitions, collaborations across disciplines, workshops, facilities and more. Thank you!
