Fine Arts Center Advisory Board

Charge

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College aims to be a national model of distinction for an arts center that joins with a college to serve the campus, the community, the region and the world. To achieve this aim, we must pursue the recommendations that make up our strategic plan; monitor progress and strengthen our approach when new opportunities are right; and engage—consistently and authentically—with both our local, national and global communities and with the college, constantly aware of how all these constituents and potential supporters perceive, use and value the opportunities we offer and how our programs, performances and events promote creativity, expand horizons and enrich lives. As an integral part of our leadership structure, the FAC Advisory Board is charged to oversee progress toward achieving the plan during our transition period that ends July 1, 2020, and after that to weigh in on changes to the plan as they are considered.
