This is a special time for Morehead State University. Many exciting changes are underway. The University organizational structure has changed and in the process the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance. The new Space Science Center is open and houses one of five space science programs in the country. The Center for Health, Education and Research is fully operational. The new Student Recreation Center will be open in 2011. The campus map and skyline have indeed changed! We are still moving forward despite the challenging times we are in.
With around 300 students and over 40 faculty and staff, we are joining together to build on our distinguished history at MSU. As our faculty works to help students thrive and develop in ways that best position them to succeed in an ever changing, challenging, and rewarding profession, we are seeking the assistance of our community of alumni and friends to help us to meet this educational challenge.
The importance of gifts to Morehead State University Department of Music, Theatre and Dance cannot be overstated. External funds are needed, in part, to support scholarships, major instrument and equipment purchases, resources for productions, and enhancements to all aspects of our educational program. Several projects are in the development stage, with three of particular importance. The first is the continued work to raise resources to be used for student scholarships. Second is raising money to become a "Steinway School." Lastly, but not of least importance is the move forward to build a state of the art performing arts center.
Morehead State music, theatre and dance students, faculty, and alumni form a unique community that has the ambition, talent, and resources to build upon a solid foundation to make a future full of exciting opportunities. United by our love for teaching, learning and the arts, we will team together to capture future opportunities and move closer to accomplishing our goals. We are grateful for your kind benevolence. Your gifts do make a difference!
