Dean's Message

The School of Visual and Performing Arts, Journalism and Speech represents a great diversity of artistic and academic disciplines, all of which are essential components of the human experience. As a vibrant and engaged faculty, staff, and administration, we are excited to bring our expertise and professional experience to our students and the community through thoughtful classroom interaction, inspiring musical and theatrical performances, thought-provoking visual arts exhibitions, and real world experience as varied as debate competition, floral arranging, and television, radio, and film production. Anyone wishing to enhance their appreciation of beauty and aesthetic awareness should consider the School of Visual and Performing Arts, Journalism and Speech their home. We are proud to serve the City of San Francisco and surrounding communities as a center for fine arts and communications.
