Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Create a behavior of attendance and support for the arts within our student population. Fine Arts Program will work with Student Activities to develop a set of surveys about perceptions and behavior in the arts; Fine Arts program will track student tickets and participation in residency; Fine Arts Program will survey graduates to assess perceptions and behavior. 2: Spend the equivalent of 30% of our artist fee budget on powerful residencies that bring the arts across campus and community. Letters of Agreement with residency details; track number and participation of residency activities. Tracking additional residency expenses, such as increased hotel and technical costs associated with residency.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Created framework to track and measure student support and perceptions of the arts and attendance patterns. FAP built a survey for this fall's first year students and will track/survey this class over the next four years in order to assess changes in perceptions/behavior. FAP tracked student participation for a baseline of comparison. 2: Spent the equivalent of 38% of our artist fee budget on residency activities. SJU tracked residencies and activities as specified in letters of agreement with artists and projected costs of residencies versus performance. SJU also tracked expenses directly related to residency activities, such as additional travel required.
