    SECTION I. PURPOSES AND OPERATIONS A. Purposes of the Institution and Art/Design Unit

    Department of Art and Art History

    California State University, Chico is a comprehensive university principally serving Northern California, our state and nation through excellence in instruction, research, creative activity, and public service.

    University Mission:

    The University is committed to assist students in their search for knowledge and understanding and to prepare them with the attitudes, skills, and habits of lifelong learning in order to assume responsibility in a democratic community and to be useful members of a global society.

    College Missions: College of Humanities and Fine Arts

    The College of Humanities and Fine Arts brings together scholars, teachers, and students from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to explore the arts, philosophies, languages, religions, literatures, and histories of diverse cultures. The College is dedicated to the inherent value of arts and ideas and the importance of imaginative and creative work. Here students develop as critical and creative thinkers who are able to communicate clearly in written, oral, and artistic expression; who embrace intellectual curiosity; who cultivate an aesthetic awareness of their world and contemporary culture; who employ appropriate theories, tools, and technologies in pursuit of learning; who use their education to contribute to the common good; and who are at home in a complex world.

    Department Goals: Department of Art and Art History

    The Department of Art and Art History is dedicated to developing students’ critical thinking skills, creativity, knowledge of aesthetics, and awareness of our Western and non-Western art heritage. Using the highest standards and ideals in the study of the visual arts, the Department of Art and Art History seeks to provide a quality education in art education, art history, art studio, and interior design. In addition, the department provides curriculum in support of the university's general education and art education programs. We also offer programs for the continued study, research, and training in art and art history leading to the Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees respectively. In all areas the department endeavors to create an environment which supports professional artistic activities and research. The faculty of the Department of Art and Art History are committed to fostering a sense of community which enables students to be simultaneously nurtured and challenged. The faculty take pride in being easily accessible -- ready to explore ideas with students and to give advice. They are a dedicated group of artists and scholars deeply involved with their own work. As teachers, they pride themselves on maintaining high standards that employ both well tested and innovative methods. They tend to integrate the investigation of

    aesthetic issues with political, historical, and moral issues during class and individual critiques. The faculty encourage students to gain skills in traditional media and new technologies. Members of the faculty are nationally known, and some are recognized on the international scene. Our artists, scholars, and designers have won significant public commissions, shown with well established galleries, received awards for distinguished teaching, written for key journals, and been speakers and panelists at conferences in the United States and abroad. In addition, renowned visiting artists, art historians, and critics
