Faculty of Arts campaign goal
We are proud to host opportunities for the sharing of discoveries and insights that fuel change, impact and growth. We invite the public to more than 300 events each year so community members can become engaged in our work.
As a foundational core of university education and research, the faculty performs a key role in enriching the communities we serve.
