Community Outreach

Working closely with faculty, students in the Department of Visual Arts perform a variety of outreach services in the Stockton and regional community. Many of these projects produce a legacy of community awareness and pride.

Through the internship program, students have worked for local companies, galleries, museums, and social service agencies.

Faculty members serve as jurors for regional art competitions, serve as guest curators, and give public lectures—ultimately leading the way for students to assist them with many of their projects.
