College of Fine Arts

Mission, Vision, Values


The mission of the College of Fine Arts is to prepare students as visual artists, performers, musicians, arts educators, and communication scholars and practitioners. The College provides instruction and cultural experiences fundamental to the liberal education of Montevallo students, as well as aesthetic enrichment for the citizens of central Alabama.


To be a 21st century destination college where teaching, making, production and research work together as key components of creative practice, where the world and the school meet in the synergies of liberal arts and conservatory-style arts programs, and where faculty think in new ways as models of the creative thinkers and problem solvers our students will become.


  • Creativity as a core 21st century competency.
