Our Mission

We educate musicians as composers, educators, performers, and scholars to build meaningful lives in the arts. We contribute to the communities and institutions where we live using music to inspire and promote learning and creativity, to increase awareness of music as an essential element of the human condition, and to assist in solving problems for individuals and institutions across many domains of human experience.

Our Vision

The Fred Fox School of Music will be a leader among schools of music in American land grant institutions. The School will be an interdependent community of student and faculty composers, educators, performers, and scholars who balance the primary work of training musicians for careers in the arts with performances, scholarships, and outreach activities that enrich the cultural life at regional, national, and international levels.
