Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Fine Arts Programming at Saint Johns' University will continue the stated goal of increasing participation by off-campus community members by 30% from 2013-2016. Fine Arts Programming will be able to measure whether programming, activities and outreach were successful at impacting this outcome through ticket reports, residency evaluations, and attendance rates at public events.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Off campus ticket purchases increased 44% over the 12/13 season, a particularly low ticket sales season. Averaged over last 3 seasons, Fine Arts Programming has seen a 20% increase in off-campus ticket purchases.
