Visions and Voices: The USC Arts and Humanities Initiative - Redundant Content Posted Under Featured Contributors
Visions and Voices is a university-wide arts and humanities initiative established by Provost C. L. Max Nikias in order to fulfill the goals set forth in USC’s strategic plan, to communicate USC’s core values to students and to affirm the human spirit. Highlighting USC’s excellence in the arts and humanities, the initiative provides inspiring and provocative experiences for all USC students, regardless of discipline, and challenges them to become world-class citizens who will make a positive impact on society.
The series features theatrical productions, music and dance performances, conferences, lectures, film screenings and many other special events both on and off campus. At every Visions and Voices program, students are invited to dialogue with artists, writers, professors and special guests. These interactions provide a dynamic experience of the arts and humanities, and encourage students to actively explore USC’s core values, which include freedom of inquiry and expression, team spirit, appreciation of diversity, commitment to serving community, entrepreneurial spirit, informed risk-taking, ethical conduct and the search for truth.
While many Visions and Voices events are held on campus, students may also take advantage of Los Angeles' vast cultural landscape by attending programs at the city’s many theatres, museums and performing-arts centers.
