Hancher's campus engagement programs

Connecting Hancher to the GE CLAS Core 

Hancher's campus engagement programs aim to enlighten those hungry for knowledge, energize each individual's creative engine, and cultivate connections between our community and the larger world. To that end, we have created Hancher Links, a handy guide to help faculty and staff make connections between Hancher’s performances and UI courses and programs. Using the university’s GE CLAS Core as a framework, we’ve categorized our performances into groups with shared themes or disciplines. Student tickets for many performances are just $10!
