Mission Statement

In the belief that the arts have been, and always will be a meaningful force in human life, and that the arts represent a pinnacle of human expressive potential, the Institute for Arts & Culture (MIAC) is dedicated to making the arts a living presence by offering the highest quality arts programing for the Erie and Mercyhurst University communities.


In 2011, Mercyhurst University announced the formation of the Institute for Arts & Culture (MIAC) which oversees the arts programming accomplished by the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center and other venues on campus. MIAC manages the planning and execution of artistic and cultural events on campus in coordination with faculty and students. Overarching to these activities is the desire to develop future patrons of the arts among Mercyhurst students and the greater Erie community through new initiatives and cross collaborations.
