Mission & Vision
Illuminate. Educate. Connect.
A campus and community where the arts are an indispensable part of everyday life for all.
The Mondavi Center explores the full range of the performing arts, from the traditional to the innovative, and from diverse cultures and disciplines through presentation, education, public service, and research. As part of the UC Davis mission as a land grant university, the Mondavi Center provides outstanding cultural programming, support for the University’s academic departments, and a professional laboratory to train students in the performing arts.
The Mondavi Center is committed to maintaining state-of-the art, world-class performance facilities and providing the highest quality experience for both artists and audiences. Our mandate is to maintain a balance between our regional responsibility, fiscal responsibility, artistic integrity, and the educational mission of the University of California.
