What binds us together as Arts Administrators, Art Therapists, Art Educators and Museum Professionals?

Our training at Florida State taught us to use the power of the arts for social justice and societal change. Students in the four graduate programs continue to use this philosophy as the guiding principal of their training as future leaders in the arts.
