Transforming education in and through the arts



The Southeast Center for Education in the Arts (SCEA), is a center under the College of Health, Education, and Professional Studies of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga that prepares future arts educators and faciliates professional learning opportunities in and through the arts. 

Our Goals:

  • Support varying needs in arts education through faciliating the growth of a diverse network of educators, adminstrators, and artists. 
  • Cultivate intentional arts learning experiences for all students in every school across the region. 
  • Empower educators, adminstrators, and artists to collaborate from a place of strength to close opportunity gaps in the arts. 
  • Activate pathways for preparing the next generation of arts educators and providing ongoing professional learning opportunities.
