Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Spend the equivalent of 30% of our artist fee budget on powerful residencies that bring the arts across our campus and our community. Evaluation: letters of agreement specifying residency details, the number of residency activities and participation; survey participants (or facilitators) to assess impact; end of season evaluation of impact. 2: Create a behavior of attendance and support for the arts within our student population. Evaluation: FAP will work with the Office of Planning and Public Affairs to survey students regarding arts attendance patterns, behaviors, perceptions, and attitudes; Track student tickets and student participation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Residency was part of all but one performance on SJU's performing arts season. Activities reached hospice homes, Veteran Administration hospitals and social service organizations. SJU tracked number of activities and participants, mix of on campus vs off campus events, fees associated with residency, as well as additional housing and/or hospitality costs associated with extra days for residency. 2: A majority (80%) of students surveyed indicated their experiences at SJU have made them more likely to attend arts events after graduation. SJU surveyed students at the end of the year and learned the majority are primed for future arts engagement: 74% believe the arts are invaluable to a healthy community, 54% attended three or more arts events in the last year.
