Monica Campbell

Associate Professor of Dance

Monica Campbell is an Associate Professor in the Department of Dance as well as the Modern/Contemporary Dance program coordinator. Her research involves uniting artistic direction and choreography with the study of humanity’s role in forging cultural change, rebelling against injustices, and working to build peace. Currently, she has expanded her research from the stage to the classroom by co-creating and teaching a new class at UVU entitled "Peacebuilding Through the Arts", with Dr. Michael Minch of the Peace and Justice Studies Program. In Spring 2017 she was awarded a CSE Faculty Fellowship to accompany UVU’s Peace and Justice Studies Program to Northern Ireland to study the peace process. The resulting research culminated in the new piece of choreography for UVU’s Contemporary Dance Ensemble, Turas, that premiered in March 2018.
