Abstract/Description: The role of a university goes beyond providing an education for its students; it is also responsible for supporting and promoting the careers of its students, faculty and alumni. However, educating a population about art in their everyday life and promoting the works of artists can be challenging and difficult to achieve with academic institutions. The Art Department at Florida State University tries to accomplish this mission through their Art on Campus Initiative, which aims to promote the work of university students, faculty and alumni through exhibitions around the campus. The Art on Campus Initiative has not only taken a unique approach to displaying these works outside of the museum context but it also has developed the special opportunity to educate the Florida State University population about art and its social and cultural importance.
