We acknowledge that our department and the CSUEB campus is on the ancestral land
of the Yrgin Chochenyo Ohlone People. We pay respects to the Ohlone people, past,
present, and future.
We invite you to reflect on the history of the lands and waterways we are all privileged to gather on. We also invite you to reflect on the legacies of colonization embedded within the technologies we use—how some pieces of technology are not available in many poor, marginalized and Indigenous communities, and how many of our technologies leave a carbon footprint that disproportionally affect poor, marginalized, and Indigenous communities. We invite everyone to take some time to consider our roles in reconciliation, decolonization and allyship.

The Theatre and Dance Department has a performance-oriented program offering undergraduate students, unparalleled opportunity to perform in major department productions beginning in their first year. Our campus is the most diverse in the entire CSU system and we have one of the most innovative theatre and dance curriculums in the state.
Former students work professionally and hold teaching positions locally and across the nation in Acting, Dance, Technical Theater, Design and Stage Management.
