Celebration of the Arts

Lift Every Voice: Celebration of the Arts

The Celebration of the Arts is part of the University of Dayton’s annual Stander Symposium which recognizes and celebrates academic excellence and creativity in undergraduate and graduate education and includes an alternate day of learning. The video below from 2018 explores the importance of the arts for University of Dayton students.


Due to the public health measures the University is taking to slow the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the 2020 Celebration of the Arts has been canceled, as we strive to protect the health of our community.
