The Fine Arts Diversity Committee (FADC) supports and collaborates with the COFA units in the design and implementation of strategies that advance diversity. By actively establishing and fostering a culture of inclusivity throughout the College community, the committee assists in the development of recruitment and retention strategies for underrepresented students, faculty and staff; provides forums for mutual respect, an appreciation of differences, and cross-cultural understandings; and prepares our community for a changing global society.
We welcome proposals from staff and faculty for guest artists and speakers whose presence on the UT campus will further the mission above. Up to $1,000 will be available for each proposal originating from a single department or academic unit of the COFA; proposals involving collaboration between multiple departments/units may be funded up to an additional $1,000 for the project ($2,000 total maximum). Proposals must be submitted at least eight weeks before the proposed residency, and must provide the information prompted below.
