The Visiting Artist and Scholar Program (VASP), created in 1994, brings nationally and internationally acclaimed artists and scholars to campus each year. Residencies vary from a few days to one-week and may include a formal lecture, workshop and classroom/studio visits with students.

Visiting artists are also brought to campus through the efforts of individual faculty and students in a variety of areas including Art Metals, Ceramics, Graphic Design and Printmaking.
