Mission, Vision and Values Statements

NMSU Theatre Arts assists New Mexico State University and its College of Arts and Sciences in providing quality education and enriching culture through scholarship and creative activities. We promote life-long discovery and nurture skilled, thoughtful, responsible and passionate citizens through a broad-based, liberal arts education that combines courses in theatre history, literature, theory and production arts.  The department serves as a major cultural asset to the campus and community through its association with American Southwest Theatre Company.

NMSU Theatre Arts values learning and knowledge, respect, collaboration, leadership, outreach, integration of theory and practice, new theatrical works, and rigor and commitment.
