Arts NC State, housed within the Division of Academic and Student Affairs, is the collective organization for NC State University’s performing and visual arts programs. Our performing and visual arts programs are the Crafts Center, the Dance Program, the Department of Music, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, NC State LIVE, and University Theatre. As an institution of higher learning, NC State University believes that art should be accessible, relevant, and transformative, and that experience with the arts is essential to the development of individuals who are better able to enjoy life and contribute to society.

In line with the overall mission of University Advancement at NC State University, the mission of the Office of Arts Development is to increase public awareness, endorsement and, most importantly, private financial support for Arts NC State in order to advance its mission and priorities.
