Mission & Vision

The mission of Carolina Performing Arts is to enrich lives by creating and presenting exceptional arts experiences and connecting them to the UNC community and beyond.

We strive to nurture artistic innovation and the development of new works on and off campus; to challenge and inspire audiences with powerful and transformative performances; and to integrate the arts into the life of the University, embracing its mission of teaching, research, and public service.

Our vision is to be recognized globally as a top presenter and the leader in integrating arts into the academy. During the 2016-17 season, we continue to live out our vision through Arts@TheCore.
