The Arts and Administration Program welcomed its first cohort of students 20 years ago, in fall term 1994. The new program consisted of three components: an arts management master’s degree, a community arts undergraduate minor, and support courses designed to serve majors and students throughout the university. It replaced the Department of Art Education, which closed in August 1993 by university action due to the Measure 5 tax limitation initiative. Linda Ettinger served as first director.
