The Definition of the UCI program, as quoted by Chair Eli Simon,
"The Department of Drama at the University of California, Irvine is a premier academic and professional training program - one which respects the legacy of our art form while actively advancing its future with a distinguished resident and guest faculty, excellent facilities, interactive student body, and extraordinary alumni placement record. We are committed to the development of theatre in which both performance and scholarly activity are informed by the exploration, scrutiny, and examination of a variety of social, political, and cultural phenomena. Ours is not a program with a single-minded approach; rather, it delights in the excitement generated from multiple points of view as represented through its diverse curriculum and faculty."
