Who We Are

HPAAC is a volunteer based UD student organization dedicated to identifying live professional touring performances which are socially relevant, culturally diverse, intellectually compelling, and emotionally captivating, while providing the highest caliber of entertainment for current UD students.


Through the collective membership’s expression of artistic tastes and interests, the committee serves as a voice for the student body in Heritage Center programmatic decisions, particularly in regards to events featured as part of the annual Live at Heritage Center Performing Arts Series.


HPAAC organizes student events such as After Dark parties and movie nights, Broadway bus trips! Members also have an opportunity to participate in the Arts Midwest Programming Conference. All UD students are welcome to join HPAAC at any time.
