Must request permission to join group. The Arts Administration program reflects the conviction that the management of cultural institutions and arts organizations requires strategic planning, artistic creativity and social commitment. The arts managers capable of responding to the challenges and responsibilities of the arts must possess integrated management and financial skills, knowledge of the artistic process in which they are involved and sensitivity to the dynamics and educational needs of the communities they serve. The Program, which offers a Master of Arts degree, represents an alliance of four disciplines: arts, education, business, and law. It is designed to help professionals meet the challenges of the next decade. These challenges include questions about the long-term health of arts organizations; their missions, governance and management; sources of income, and tax regulations. Such issues as freedom of expression, First Amendment rights, censorship and government intervention in the arts have important implications for international, educational, and cultural policy, and are integral to the Program. Today, arts administration training in the United States is a model in the field that addresses worldwide concerns.

Short for magazine or fanzine, zines are self-publications, motivated by a desire for self-expression, not for profit. Although zines, a rich and democratic form of self-expression that range from scholarly treatises on diverse issues to wildly creative artworks, have been around for a long time, few libraries have yet to begin collecting and preserving them. Our collection development policy provides both contemporary and future researchers a unique insight into today's feminist culture. Barnard's zines are primarily in the area of women's studies, featuring personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, feminism, gender, lesbians, menstruation, parenting, sexual assault, and other topics. They are created by women of color, NYC and other urban women. The term "woman" applies to anyone who self-identifies as such.

Contact: Peter Andrews, Head Manager - head@cuband.org
In the 50s, our great country was going through a lot of changes. Disco was at its peak, little Shirley Temple was charming the hearts of Americans everywhere, Jesus was walking the earth, and Ronald Reagan was pushing hard for the new women's suffrage movement. The Columbia University Marching Band, which had always been slightly wacky, took a good look at itself. "How," we asked ourselves, "could we make being in a marching band even more fun?" Well, we decided that the whole marching around and forming rhombi thing had gone out of style with World War II. So we introduced the world to the "scramble band" concept--so named for the way bandies would scramble from one interesting formation to the next. As Band became more popular, people who didn't play stuff started to join solely as an outlet for their cleverness.

On a monthly basis on Thursday night, Bard Hall Main Lounge is transformed into an elegant (well, sort of) venue at which punk and heavy metal “rock out” with classical and jazz, poetry is recited alongside stand-up comedy, and a cappella music intertwines in a bizarre yet strangely compelling do-si-do with modern dance; occasionally even some Meat Loaf may be heard above the melodious din of ice cream trucks and car alarms outside. Always a great study break, Coffeehouse is the perfect time to sit back, relax and enjoy free talent and refreshment while socializing with students from other years and schools.

The Collegium Musicum is one of Columbia University's leading choral ensembles. While traditionally maintaining a lean, intimate chamber choir size of 16 to 40 members, the repertoire of the last 10 years of the Collegium has included ventures into such ambitious repertoire as the Brahms Requiem, in collaboration with the Manhattan School of Music choir and Columbia University Orchestra. Founded in the mid-1950s, the Collegium was first conceived as an opportunity for graduate students in musicology to experience early music in a performance context that was tightly integrated with the academic curriculum. It soon developed into an ensemble featuring instruments as well as singers (with world renowned music scholar Richard Taruskin as its first gambist). The staple repertoire of the Collegium has been Medieval and Renaissance composers such as Machaut, Josquin, Palestrina, Ockeghem, Tallis, and Byrd as well as Baroque composers such as Monteverdi and Bach. The Collegium also has a commitment to perform works which are not frequently performed, as well as 20-th century and contemporary music. Recent examples of this are concerts featuring the works of John Cage and Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms. The Collegium has served as a springboard for former directors, some of whom have founded notable ensembles including Capella Nova (Richard Taruskin), Pomerium (Alexander Blachly), and Anonymous 4 (Susan Hellauer), and Eric Rice (the Collegium Musicum of University of Connecticut). Historic recordings of the Collegium can still be found at http://minstrelrecords.com/Coll_Des.htm

The term 'musicology' in the journal's title is to be understood in the broadest sense possible. The wide scope of the journal is evident in special issues devoted to specific topics, in the broad range of scholarship encouraged, and in the variety of books reviewed.

Since Paul Wingert expanded the Department's curriculum in the 1930s, coursework in the study of the arts of Africa, Oceania, Native America, the Near East, East Asia is a staple of the Columbia University curriculum, and like Columbia's great teachers of the past--Meyer Schapiro, Rudolf Wittkower, Rober Branner, Howard McP. Davis, Julius Held, Howard Hibbard, Edith Porada, and William Bell Dinsmoor--today's faculty continue to apply art historical methods to illuminate particular works of art, even as they place their works in the broadest cultural context.

Founded by Kelvin Sealey and John Broughton, our mission at FERA is to explore the unexamined pedagogical nexus of cinema, teaching and learning. It is our belief that the psychological weight of cinematic content, and the powerful visual vocabulary at its center, can become a powerful counterbalance to the numbing tendencies of media stimulus if educators are taught the value of converting cinematic product into opportunities to advance critical ideas, making cinema a tool of learning rather than merely a vehicle for escapism. And as a catalyst for social justice, we believe that film offers unrecognized opportunities for imparting ideas of socially concerned citizenship in a world

In 1985, Suzanne Fremon, a concert pianist and computer programmer at the Columbia computer center, with the help of Aaron Warner, president of the Advisory Board of the Faculty House, inaugurated a series of noon-hour concerts, for the Columbia and Morningside Heights community. In general, the series begins in mid-October and continues through mid-December, in the Fall; in the Spring, the series runs from mid-February through the end of April. There are roughly 20 concerts in the course of a school year. The series is named for I.I. Rabi, Nobel physics professor, who was an early supporter and Aaron Warner, director of the University Seminars, who was a major influence in the early days of establishing the series. Both are deceased. The concerts take place on Wednesdays, from 12:15 to 1 PM. Audience members are encouraged to have lunch, either beforehand or afterwards, at the 4th floor dining room, where a reservation is advisable, or at the 3rd floor cafeteria. The performers are professional musicians, usually from the New York area, who like to appear at the Faculty House, because the ambiance is friendly, the acoustics are good and the audience is welcoming. Many concert artists use the Faculty House setting as an opportunity to test upcoming programs they plan to perform in other venues around the City or on tour. Since the Faculty House sponsors the Rabi-Warner concerts, admission is free of charge to the audience.

Raw Elementz burst into being in the spring of 2001, when former Culture Shock dancer and current slave to academia Kristin Liu decided to take matters into her own hands. In the beginning, there was Kant. On the weekends, there was more Kant, and sometimes Aristotle, or if you were lucky enough to go to Barnard you might get something interesting. Then Kristin said, Let there be hip-hop, and Raw Elementz was born. And it was good. As long-time big cheese in the satellite hip-hop interest group of the Chinese Students Club, Kristin made the move to expand her base of operations. She created an organization modeled loosely after Culture Shock, a professional dance troupe and outreach organization in cities around the world. She worked tirelessly to attain ABC and SGA recognition, hounded random students for signatures, and essentially stopped at nothing until her mission was completed. Of course, in the end it all paid off, and Raw Elementz has since grown into what it is now: An independent, diverse, awesome group of people who love to dance.

One skill that cannot be over-taught is the ability to think on one’s feet- to actively listen and appropriately respond. This skill is at the core of improvisational comedy, and is honed with practice of the art. Our goal is to use improv comedy to teach CUMC students to respond to their environments and confidently approach new and unpredictable situations- situations similar to what health care professionals must face in their daily lives. THE HUMERUS provides a fun and supportive space for students to gather in order to escape the rigors of academia, and explore a different side of themselves.

The Current's paper is 100% Forest Stewardship Council certified, and 50% of it comes from recycled sources, of which 25% is post-consumer waste. Additionally, no chlorine or acids were used to bleach the paper or publish the journal.

The Fed is Columbia's alternative newspaper. We print stories that either profoundly shake our complacent and familiar thought patterns, or else stories that make us chuckle. It's easier to make us chuckle, admittedly. But we really hope to be like one of those drugs that does both.

The Gadfly is the undergraduate philosophy magazine of Columbia University, and the first in the country. It is a magazine and not a journal—instead of publishing formal academic papers, we print informal essays, book and event reviews, interviews, humor, and short stories and lots of art. We think philosophy is too important to limit our readership through jargon and name-dropping. We publish The Gadfly so that all undergraduates—not only those specializing in philosophy—can take part in enjoyable philosophical dialogue.

In today's global community, visual images are the primary form of communication. Images have the presence to communicate what thousands of words cannot. They must be analyzed and understood because they embody historical and psychological viewpoints used to determine cultural norms and political climates. To be unable to decipher a photograph's construction, implications and power is to be fundamentally illiterate. The Photography Institute brings together today's noted and emerging artists, scholars and critics to provide a forum where they can explore contemporary issues in visual imagery and photographic image making.

The Varsity Show, founded as a fundraiser for Varsity athletics in 1894, is one of the oldest traditions at Columbia University, and certainly its oldest performing arts tradition. Its long list of alumni includes such distinguished names as Oscar Hammerstein II '16, Lorenz Hart '18, Richard Rodgers '23, I.A.L. Diamond '41, and Terrence McNally '60. Each year, the Varsity Show attracts some of the campus's finest actors and creative talents to produce a full-length original musical comedy that skewers and satirizes the more dubious aspects of life at Columbia. The Varsity Show now draws together the entire Columbia undergraduate community for a series of sold-out performances every April. Check out www.thevarsityshow.com for news, ticket information, history, and streaming music from past shows. Get in touch: varsity@columbia.edu

The Theatre Arts Division attracts students of acting, directing, playwriting, dramaturgy, and management who have the talent, vision, and commitment to become exceptional artists. At Columbia they interact with some of the leading creators, practitioners, producers, and analysts of today's theatre, acquiring disciplines rooted deeply in the classics while branching out into new forms and exploring the cutting edge of theatrical art. The best theatre in every culture and in all eras has not only reflected its time but also shaped its society and often helped point it toward the future. We believe we can restore the theatre to a place of influence in our culture by reminding audiences of the parts they play in forming a civilization that aspires to the highest ideals of human endeavor.

Contemporary art has become increasingly interdisciplinary. To that end, the Division of Visual Arts keeps the walls between its disciplines low, offering an M.F.A. degree in Visual Arts, rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program taught by internationally celebrated artists allows students to pursue digital media, drawing, new genres, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video art. In addition to rigorous training within a specific discipline, we encourage our students to cross boundaries, both within our Division and outside of it, to take advantage of Columbia's renowned Writing, Theatre, and Film programs. This unique cultural nexus is our signature, distinguishing us from other comparable programs.

The Visual Media Center explores material culture, vision, media, and pedagogy in the broadest sense to connect faculty research and student learning through the creative application of technology. Our goal is to examine and extend the ways of interpreting images, objects, buildings, and sites and to reinforce Columbia’s historic strengths in core education for undergraduate students, graduate student training, and faculty research. Our specialized facilities and personnel serve the closely related fields of Archæology, Art History, and Historic Preservation. There are natural affinities with Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Teachers College, other Arts and Sciences departments, and the schools of Architecture, Engineering, Journalism, and International and Public Affairs.

Our staff is a fine bunch of Barnard and Columbia students, and every one of us is just as aesthetically pleasing as we are qualified for the job. WBAR's mission is to provide an outlet for the music that you won't find on mainstream stations, so we don't stop at broadcasting. We also put on some of the best shows in New York City.

WKCR is Columbia's non-commercial, student-run radio station broadcasting throughout the New York Metro area at 89.9 FM and streaming around the world at wkcr.org. Since its inception in 1941, WKCR has stood strong against the tide of commerce in defense of art. As a public radio station free from commercial and political pressures, WKCR gives top priority to meaningful art; Louis Armstrong, J.S. Bach, Bessie Smith, and many other geniuses are broadcast staples that grace WKCR's airwaves daily. WKCR applies to this artistic spectrum the stated goals of Columbia University: education and research. The mission of education is twofold, offering listeners informed programming with historical emphasis while training undergraduates in understanding the art forms as well as the style and science of presenting them on radio.

Hundreds of books have been published by our graduates, including numerous thesis projects. Our location in New York City provides us with a two-way avenue to the nation's literary and publishing nexus. Students have access to events and internships at such institutions as the Poetry Society of America, the Academy of American Poets, The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and the PEN American Center. Representatives from publishing houses and literary agencies regularly come to campus. The Hertog Fellowship program enables six students a year to work as research assistants to writers who also serve as mentors, such as Rick Moody, A. M. Homes, Peter Carey, and Diane McWhorter.
