About the University Center for the Arts:

The Seton Hill University Center for the Arts is being created through a partnership of Seton Hill University, the City of Greensburg, the Westmoreland Trust, the Redevelopment Authority of the County of Westmoreland and the Greensburg Salem School District. The $11.5 million Center for the Arts, located in downtown Greensburg, will include an interconnected flexible theatre building and a recital hall for Seton Hill’s premier academic programs in music and theatre. In preparation for phase two of the project, Seton Hill is taking appropriate steps to develop a business incubation program to complement the area’s economic development strategy. The Center will help enhance Greensburg’s cultural district by building on the momentum created by the recent restorations of the Greensburg Train Station, Palace Theatre and historic Stark and James buildings.
