COFAC Faculty Receive 2012-2013 PAS ASP Grants
Every year the Performing Arts Society (PAS) awards Academic Support Program (ASP) grants to the COFAC faculty on a competitive basis. This year the recipients of those grants will provide musical and visual arts opportunities to the university and community. The 2012-13 PAS ASP grants return $21,450 to the university and community.
The Performing Arts Society raises funds through membership and fund raising events. Anyone interested in becoming a PAS member can do so for as little as $10 per year. Contact the Dean’s office to learn more about the Performing Arts Society, 309.298.1618.
