Message from Dr. Robert T. Stroker
Robert T. Stroker, Ph.D.
Dean, Center for the Arts and
Vice Provost for the Arts
From its founding in 1962, the Boyer College of Music and Dance, part of the new Center for the Arts at Temple University, is located in the culturally vibrant city of Philadelphia. At this time, I would like to invite you to explore this exciting and vibrant community of outstanding artists, educators, and scholars as you plan to prepare for a successful career in the field of music or dance.
Students at the Boyer College have the unique opportunity to interact with leading composers, conductors, educators, performers and choreographers while experiencing a challenging and diverse academic curriculum. We are also extremely proud of our affiliate faculty members, many of whom are principals and section members of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Boyer graduates have gone on to rewarding careers as dance and music professionals. In addition, many of our graduates are in leadership positions and teaching at the leading colleges and universities throughout the country.
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." We in the Boyer College strive to provide the knowledge, experience and education to enable our students to turn their dreams into reality.
