Board of Directors




The USI Society for Arts and Humanities acts as a major support mechanism for the two theatres which the University sponsors. The New Harmony Theatre offers a season of live professional theatre each summer in charming Murphy Auditorium in New Harmony. Throughout the academic year, USI Theatre stages productions growing out of the undergraduate theatre program. 

Literary Arts

The Society also supports the annual RopeWalk Writers Retreat, which brings prominent poets and writers to New Harmony for a week of workshops, public lectures, and readings in June. The RopeWalk Reading Series brings poets and writers to campus for public readings throughout the academic year. The RopeWalk Winter Weekend Retreat provides an opportunity to workshop with writers in a brief three-day workshop in late February or early March.  Student writers receive financial assistance from the Society through merit scholarships. In addition, Society members host receptions following readings by guest artists.
