LETTER FROM THE DEAN Welcome to the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts — the premier institution for research, scholarship and innovation in the arts at a major public research university. Our vision is to be the first-choice public institution for innovative education in the arts, embracing and enhancing the cultural richness and diversity of the city of Houston. We are educating our students to be resourceful, inventive and engaged creative professionals whose critical thinking and problem solving skills position them to profoundly influence their communities and their culture. Please join us this season for an event or a performance on our beautiful campus — one of Houston’s most significant arts and cultural destinations.
