Department of Theater Arts Statement:  #FordHall 2015

The Department of Theater Arts at Brandeis University stands in solidarity with the students of #FordHall2015 in calling on the university to fulfill its commitments to social justice, diversity and inclusion. We are grateful to the Concerned Students for inspiring dialogue and action to end racism and discrimination on campus. We commit to an ongoing process of educating ourselves, and reaffirm the capacity of the arts to challenge oppression and enable transformation. We join our colleagues and call upon the Senior Administration and the Board of Trustees to take immediate first steps towards transforming Brandeis University into a fully inclusive University.


The Department of Theater Arts offers a distinguished array of programming, led by a gifted faculty of scholars, theater artists and practitioners. By uniting creative expression with academic inquiry, we educate our students to become accomplished artists and engaged citizens who are prepared to contribute to a multicultural society.

Our rich history is embedded in the legacy of Leonard Bernstein and the gifted collaborators who invigorated Spingold Theater Center into being. At the forefront is a strong community of students, faculty and staff who work every day toward the common privilege of creating and discussing the world of theater through classes, lectures, workshops and performances.
