Welcome from Robert T. Stroker

Dean and Vice Provost for the Arts

Portrait of Dean Robert StrokerThe Center for the Performing and Cinematic Arts exemplifies the synergy between the performing and cinematic arts at Temple. The Center serves as the gateway for creative collaboration between the Boyer College of Music and Dance and the School of Theater, Film and Media Arts and the community. The Center offers 1,500 performances,  lectures, screenings, master classes and productions each year – all open to the public and most of which are free.

If you haven’t been to campus lately, I extend an invitation to visit. Parking is affordable and plentiful. Night life at Temple is abundant and you may be surprised at all the activities taking place on a daily basis. The newly opened Morgan Hall residence offers varied dining options and a beautifully lit terrace just
 a few blocks away from the Temple Performing Arts Center, Rock Hall, Conwell Dance Theater and Tomlinson Theater.

Please take a moment to visit the EVENTS section which includes a comprehensive calendar of arts events on campus. 

Supporting the arts at Temple helps us to grow programs and create scholarships allowing students an affordable education of the highest quality. To learn more, please visit SUPPORT.

I hope to see you on campus.
