The Florida State University College of Fine Arts is poised for another outstanding academic year and I am excited to be a part of it! FSU is, after all, where I earned my wings. As a two-time graduate, I am a ‘Nole at heart. After 19 years away, I am particularly happy to be “home.” I look forward to helping move the College of Fine Arts into the next phase of its existence, with a renewed commitment to providing the highest caliber of education to our students and supporting the research and creativity of our exceptional faculty. Sincerely, James Frazier, Ed.D., M.F.A. Dean College of Fine Arts Florida State University
