SEO and URL Forwarding

I'm a professor in a dance department. We're making a new gallery website. As a recruitment tool, we want to improve our Google search hits when people search for the phrase "dance departments." The URL for the site is a long bureaucratic monstrosity. But we've also bought the domain OSUdance.com. If we distributed OSUdance.com and had it bounce to the long university URL, does that diminish our SEO—that people searching for "dance department" would find us any less than if we had distributed the long URL? Thanks so much for any guidance.
