I. Mission Statement

The Lyceum Program Series at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is dedicated to bringing the most provocative, culturally diverse programming to the university campus.  The core intent is to bring world class programs to students, faculty, staff and the community at large.  Our quest is to expose university and community audiences to venues of entertainment that are beyond the normal rich array of educational programs offered at A&T, and to perpetuate an international view of the arts. 

II.            About Lyceum Programs

Based on Greek history, a Lyceum (pronounced  līsē'əm or in original Greek lȳkeion—meaning to ‘light’ or ‘enlighten’) is defined as an educational institution or a public hall used for cultural events.  At North Carolina A & T State University, we encompass both definitions in our Lyceum programming during each academic year.  In essence, we are one of the premiere educational institutions in North Carolina that supports enlightening both our students and members of the broader Greensboro community. The Lyceum Series is primarily designed to enhance the intellectual, cultural and educational experiences of students at the University, thereby contributing to our mission of educating the whole person.  Lyceum broadens student awareness of the arts and current issues addressing our society, while invigorating connections to our broader community. Sample programs include, but are not limited to musical performances, theater events, dance programs, visual arts exhibitions, and distinguished speakers.

All Lyceum program applicants must address the impact that their proposed program will have on the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University student body as well as residents of Greensboro and surrounding areas. 

III.            Application Details and Guidelines:
