Working closely with all the departments in the School of the Arts and Communication, the other Schools at TCNJ, and student organizations, the Center serves as a resource for community engagement. The goal is to elucidate how creativity and innovation have been used both historically and in current practice to help cultures better understand who they are, how they have evolved, and how they might define themselves in the future. The Center promotes traditional and nontraditional forms of creative expression and stresses how and why communication practices are impactful. Through a growing network of campus-community partnerships, the Center develops programming that contributes to the aesthetic and economic vitality of our region.
Our performing arts facilities include the Kendall Main Stage Theater, the Don Evans Black Box Theater, and the Mildred & Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall.
