Razor's Edge Shark Talent Scholars Program

The Razor's Edge Shark Talent Scholars Program is designed for first time in college freshmen who have been active in community or high school arts programs and are passionate about using the arts to bring people together. Students will work with the Department of Performing and Visual Arts and other campus organizations to cultivate leadership abilities in a creative and scholarly community. Experiences at NSU in the classroom, leading student arts organizations, and participating in workshops with arts leaders, will develop students’ marketable skills including innovative interpersonal communication, project management, and creative inquiry. Upon completion of the Shark Talent Program, students will be able to successfully lead collaborative arts projects and will have completed a performing or visual arts minor or major. The group will meet weekly and work together to recruit and develop audiences and participants primarily from NSU students.
