Dean’s Advisory Council

The distinguished individuals who comprise the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Advisory Council include many alumni who have graduated from our top programs as well as others who have become strong supporters of our students and programs through other avenues. Each member is a person of insight and accomplishment who maintains a strong commitment to Florida State University, and particularly to the great arts programs housed within our College.

The Council meets twice a year but remains actively engaged throughout the year in supporting and advising the Dean in efforts to advance the College of Fine Arts and maintain its status as a top-ranked institution for visual arts, theatre, and dance.
