Academics | Program for International Visiting Artist-in-Residence (PIVA)
The Collins Living-Learning Center and the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts co-sponsor this program, which brings emerging international visiting artists to teach during the second eight-week session during the fall and spring semesters.
