Expanding Inclusion and Diversity Through the Performing Arts

Expanding Inclusion and Diversity Through the Performing Arts is entering its final semester with an incredible array of artists and supporting programming in Fall 2023.

We invite all members of the KU and Haskell communities to work with the Lied Center, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Mellon Scholars Seminar as we continue to develop more substantial and engaging approaches to bringing the knowledge, skills, and experiences of diverse and transformative performing artists into our classrooms across fields, discipline, genre, and level. We will continue to build inclusive practices and diverse approaches to learning through the performing arts.
