Two New Schools — Arts and Public and Global Affairs — Announced
A new School of Arts is due to be launched in fall of 2018, and the School of Public and Global Affairs has just been formed with a generous gift of $2.5 million made recently by FDU alumnus James Orefice, MA’91 (Metro), and his family.
The arts school will build upon the majors offered by the visual and performing arts department — film and animation, fine arts, graphic design and theater arts — and their concentrations. The creative writing program will also be added, creating a single creative and administrative entity within the Maxwell Becton College of Arts and Sciences at the Florham Campus. The offerings will combine a strong liberal arts education, hands-on creative work, valuable opportunities for internships and an integrated approach to arts entrepreneurship.
For more information on the school and a Question and Answer with Becton College Dean Geoffrey Weinman, go to the “New School of the Arts to Be Launched in Fall” in this issue’s College Happenings section at http://view2.fdu.edu/publications/inside-fdu-newsletter/2016-2017/november-december/college-happenings/.
The gift of the Orefice family will be used to support private scholarships for students studying in the new School of Public and Global Affairs and to support distinguished visiting faculty who will teach in the school. The school will build on the success of FDU’s Public Administration Institute and its master of public administration program, FDU’s PublicMind polling institute and new and existing graduate programs in public administration and global affairs. The school will operate University-wide and at all four campuses.
