Dean of the Hixson-Lied College
of Fine & Performing Arts
Letter from the Dean
The fine and performing arts have been a vital part of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus since the 1800s. However, it was 1993 when things really began to take off for us and we became our own College of Fine and Performing Arts. In 2000, through the incredible generosity of Ms. Christina Hixson and Lied Foundation Trust, we became the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.
It’s good to be a young college in this day and age. Emboldened by our traditions to be sure, our gaze now turns toward our future, one that is expansive and full of potential, just like our beautiful Nebraska horizon. We are proud to be our state’s flagship college of fine and performing arts. What our students learn here will keep art, music, dance, theatre and film alive in Nebraska for generations to come.Read More
