Save Performing Arts at WSU

This petition had 694 supporters

Washington State University's president, Kirk Schulz, recently announced that Performing Arts and its four staff members would be cut. Performing Arts costs approximately $230,000 per year, yet brings in, and creates, world class entertainment to 13,000 guests annually, safely supports venues available to rent, maintains an extensive collection of costumes, props, furniture, and lighting
fixtures, teaches 250 students per year which includes a large UCORE course, mentors and trains the 35-member student theatre organization, has maintained a grant program that helps to bring in students from underserved Washington communities, and is a direct collaborator with other units, colleges, and
the Pullman community. WSU’s $230,000/year investment in the 4 salaries carries quite an impressive return.
