• Arts in the Community

    Monmouth University Center for the Arts celebrates diversity by engaging local citizens through the arts. We foster a strong sense of community through productions and lectures through outreach and scholarship programs.

    The MCA actively works with the many non-profit community organizations and shelters in the region, offering outreach programs visiting local schools, hosting workshops on campus, and presenting master classes at partner facilities. Through the University’s Community Relations Office, the Center for the Arts ensures that underserved populations and communities in need have access to the arts.
