Looking To The Future

The nationally award winning The School of Arts + Enterprise (The SAE) continues to look ahead to ensure a strong and stable future. Beginning in the winter of  2021 The SAE began the process of developing a five year strategic plan for the next chapter of our future. Focusing on major pillars for success, the final strategic plan will be presented to the school community in late summer, 2022.

Additionally, joining The SAE this year in a variety of key supporting roles as our Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Partner is Dr. Denise Davis-Cotton, founder of the Detroit School for the Arts and the Director of Florida Center for PAInT at the University of Florida - Sarasota.
