Strategic Research Plan


UVic’s Faculty of Fine Arts has an extraordinary legacy spanning almost 50 years of artists and scholars learning, teaching, and creating works and scholarship that inspire. With experiential learning at our core, we provide the finest training and learning environment for artists, professionals, and students. We integrate and advance creation and scholarship in the arts in a dynamic learning environment.

As an essential and vital cultural partner on campus and in the community, Fine Arts aspires to lead in arts-based research and creative activity and education in local, national, and global contexts. In the next five years Fine Arts will build on this legacy by supporting excellence, investigation, and experimentation in research and creative activity, teaching, and community engagement through six priority initiatives.
