Theatre Faculty


The relationship between faculty and students is a crucial one that fosters the sense of respect and trust that allows for students to gain the most from their training. The faculty strongly supports the following responsibilities:

  • Creating a safe classroom environment. Especially in a genre such as theatre that inherently involves some very intense and personal emotions, it is crucial that faculty fosters safe learning where students can comfortably take risks. Part of creating a safe classroom is the dedication to getting to know students as individuals, and recognizing that they each have contributions to make to the class.
  • Respecting diversity. The faculty is committed to recognizing and addressing diversity in the classroom, knowing that a diverse classroom provides opportunities for increased learning. Students are also expected to respect diversity in their fellow classmates.
  • Encouraging students to take responsibility for their own learning and education. The faculty sees its teaching role to be a guide, a conduit—encouraging students to grab the reins and continue their learning outside of the classroom. There are high expectations regarding student work and participation—with a firm belief that students get out of a situation what they put into it, and the faculty therefore demands that the students be active learners.
