Dean's Welcome


Scott EmmonsWhen you visit the Peck School of the Arts, you'll find something different than what you encounter in other concert halls, museums, and theaters. Yes—we have the lights, cameras, paintings, musical and dance ensembles, and the talent but, we're different. That's because here at the Peck School, we are in the unique business of developing tomorrow's artistic leaders.

In fact, as Wisconsin's leading comprehensive arts education institution, we have launched thousands of bright, professional careers in art and design, film, dance, theatre, music and arts education. We have also played an influential role in establishing new performing arts companies and hosted some of the world's best creative talent to add an extraordinary dimension to our students' and audience's experience.

Imbued with a deep sense of social and community responsibility, we are committed to innovation, interdisciplinary training and cutting-edge research. And we are constantly developing strong partnerships with leading arts organizations and businesses around Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the U.S., and the world to deepen our impact both in the arts and the world-at-large.

I urge you to be a part of the Peck School community, and take part in all that we have to offer. And be sure to watch our site for exciting news about the Harmony Initiative and the 2012-13 celebration called the Year of the Arts.

See you soon,
