Community Partnerships

Fall 2014 PASJ Guest Artist

The PASJ program hosts a local artist whose work is aligned with our mission to provide a series of workshops to students and faculty in the department. This academic year's artist is The Imaginists.

Community Partners

The Performing Arts department is committed to developing dialogues between faculty, students, and community organizations. Our service learning courses and our community-based performances are co-investigations with community participants, in which students, professors, and community partners join scholarly and artistic inquiry. Our community partners have included:

  • Community Works
  • Resolve to Stop the Violence (RSVP)
  • SA Sheriff's Department
  • Mission Cultural Ctr
  • St. Anthony's Foundation
  • Institute on Aging
  • Bethany Center
  • San Francisco Opera
  • Ruth's Table

Performing Arts Department's Community-Engaged Projects


In addition to promoting indivdual artistic achievment, the PASj major emphasizes the precripricol relationship between artists and their communities.  Below are examples of some of the many opportunities students have to engage in community-based projects.
