Sarah Nash Gates, Executive Director of the School of Drama, will be retiring this July.
In her twenty years as Executive Director, Sarah has celebrated the teaching, discovery, innovation, and problem solving that are at the core of a liberal arts education. She has encouraged excellence among her students and faculty, inspiring them to become leaders in their field as well as informed and contributing members of society. Sarah is nationally known as an expert in professional theatre training, a strong leader, a talented costume designer, a dedicated instructor, and an insightful mentor.
One of the many ways we have worked to honor Sarah's legacy is by establishing the Sarah Nash Gates Endowed Graduate Student Support Fund. This will be a permanent fund supporting graduate students in acting, directing, design, theatre history, and theory and criticism. The endowment will reward high-achieving and deserving students and help the School of Drama recruit outstanding candidates into its graduate programs.
Please consider making a donation in honor of Sarah. Your donation, no matter the size, will go a long way to supporting the work and the students to which Sarah has devoted her career.
