Quality of Life
What will this funding provide?
- A block of tickets set aside so UNC students can attend PVA events at no charge. Also support for the very under-funded UNC Marching Band – the Pride of the Rockies
What will change about the PVA department if this act goes through?
- We will be able to offer tickets to the greater campus population.
Why does PVA need increased funding?
- Because most our performance are related to our degree programs, we have no outside funding sources to cover the costs of producing the events, which is why there is a ticket charge. FY 2008-09 the ticket sales to students was $48,996. We can’t offer free tickets without the support to replace those dollars.
Who will this additional funding benefit?
- UNC students, faculty and staff as well as the UNC Marching Band.
Will this increase involvement of students outside of the PVA department?
- We have had students all across campus tell us that once they attend a PVA event, they are truly amazed and feel proud to be a student at a University where the arts programs are so excellent.
