Florida State University
In 2000, the Florida legislature placed the stewardship of The Ringling under Florida State University. FSU has a long tradition of excellence in the arts and, in the College of Visual Arts, Theatre, and Dance, contains some of the leading arts programs in the nation. The Ringling cultural campus is also home to the Sarasota Ballet, Asolo Repertory Theatre, and FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training making it one of the largest college arts complexes in the country.
The Ringling is committed to strengthening its ties with academic departments across FSU, with the aim of providing educational opportunities for students and faculty in many different disciplines, now and in the future.
