The impact of the arts at UCI reaches far beyond our university’s walls.
The strength of any organization is its people and its commitment to community. Central to the mission of the Claire Trevor School of the Arts is sharing the richness and depth of our creative activity.
We are proud to be one of the nation’s most acclaimed and innovative cultural centers, dedicated to the study of visual and performing arts, offering degrees in art, dance, drama and music, with an emphasis on Research and Innovation and Community Outreach.
A testament to our impact is our celebrated faculty, students, and alumni, who are recognized globally for their contributions to art, culture, and industry.
Today on Giving Day, we are seeking support to help ensure that programs in art, dance, drama and music remain an essential part of a UCI education and to help us expand our community impact.
Last year, the Claire Trevor School of the Arts community was ignited as gifts poured in from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends nationwide making it our most successful Giving Day to date. With your help, we aim to rally our UCI Arts community once again to support the artistic endeavors of our students and faculty.
Your gift—large or small—makes a BIG IMPACT! Especially when you participate in one of our giving matches challenges throughout the day. Each time we complete a match or challenge, more dollars are unlocked to support the departments of art, dance, drama and music.
We invite you to invest in the next generation of creative leaders by making a gift to one of our four departments of excellence.
Your support of the Departments of art, dance, drama and music will support:
- Innovative productions and exhibitions
- Visiting artists, masterclasses, and workshops
- Student scholarships and fellowships
- Creative graduate and faculty research
Every dollar raised on Giving Day will directly support our students and faculty and empower them to explore new frontiers in the arts, cultivate their voices and excel in their roles both on and off campus.
Thank you for sharing in the belief that the arts are essential to a healthy and vibrant community. Together—in just one day—we will continue to champion the arts and the next generation of creative leaders at UCI.
