  • To involve and respond to a diverse public of students, faculty and staff, as well as local and international cultural participants
  • To stimulate curricular and co-curricular learning and innovative research in art, design and curatorial practice
  • To heighten the public profile of OCAD University and to provide vital encounters between the university and the public
  • To develop programs, systems and policies that involve and converse with people of widely differing experiences, including students, faculty, staff, researchers, artists, designers, curators and the general public
