Engage, Educate and Entertain
SCU•Presents, the Performing Arts Center at Santa Clara University, is dedicated to the enhancement of arts education, where artists are central to our creative culture; the advancement of Arts for Social Justice programs, which creates a catalyst for change in our society; and the presentation of a rich program of diverse professional artists and art forms for campus and the Silicon Valley community.
The arts stimulate, celebrate and enhance an understanding of others and ourselves through a shared experience. Our goal is to make the arts an integral part of student life, while keeping it affordable and accessible to all who want to participate.
The Arts for Social Justice program is a collaborative, interdisciplinary initiative whose mission is to raise awareness about critical issues addressing the human condition, through the creation of and participation in a wide variety of art forms, both on and off campus, that foster dialogue and action in the community.
We further engage and strengthen our commitment to the arts through our Visiting Artists Partnerships. From the finest professional artists, (Broadway’s Next Hit Musical!) to the best community arts organizations (Ching Ching Chorus, India Waves, Center Stage Dance Company, Arte Flamenco de San Jose) SCU•Presents demonstrates our commitment to all the arts.
In everything we do, whether to educate the whole person, make a difference through Arts for Social Justice or engage our community, our underlying goal is to also entertain. We invite you to join us at SCU•Presents for a wonderful season.
