A center for cultural enrichment and entertainment is achieved by promoting and advancing the fine and performing arts, NCAA intercollegiate athletics, lectures, university student organization programs and recreational co-curricular activities.

Through these activities Northeastern State will act as a preferred destination for visitors and serve a dual function of enhancing regional economic development through visitors' expenditures while providing an exceptional experience for those who participate in our activities and events.

  • An institution that embraces a commitment to cultural enrichment and entertainment:
  • Promotes diverse continuing education programs and services
  • Acts as a regional leader that promotes concerts and lectures
  • Supports the arts through student performances, art shows, museum quality exhibitions etc.
  • Competes in the highest classification of NCAA intercollegiate athletics as possible
  • (sponsored and non sponsored) recreational activities for campus and community members
  • Hosts a variety of youth camps
  • Nurtures and supports indigenous arts and cultural activities linked to NSUs heritage 

* Priorities to be identified in 2011-2012
