Know of an exemplary practice to engage college students with performing arts? Tell us about it!

Calling all performing arts presenters on college campuses, academic departments (music, dance theater), and performing arts
and other nonprofit arts organizations! WolfBrown, with the Student Engagement Working Group of the Major University
Presenters consortium, is accepting Case Study Nominations to be included in a resource for campus-based performing arts presenters on exemplary practice in student engagement. Selected case studies will be featured in a national publication. Please complete and submit the online nomination form by April 30.


The goal of this project is to compile and disseminate good practice to the field. Any campus-based performing arts presenter,

performing artist, student organization, or academic department may nominate one or more case studies. Case studies might include:

  • Student marketing campaigns that have yielded good results
  • Programs through which students engage directly with visiting artists
  • Programs through which students create artistic work, or learn about creativity
  • Programs that involve students in planning or producing programs
  • Effective student ticket discount programs
  • Other examples of student engagement in the performing arts

Nominations should be exemplary in some way. In other words, some evidence of success should be provided that demonstrates why the nominated practice is innovative, replicable, or successful. WolfBrown and the Student Engagement Working Group will review the nominations and select a diverse group of case studies for further research and writing. For more information, contact Jennifer Novak-Leonard at

About the Student Engagement Research Initiative: With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College is leading a multi-site research effort aimed at gauging how to maximize students’ performing arts participation and attendance, including a focus on the particular challenges around classical music. The study will culminate in summer 2013 with a national convening of students from MUP campuses to analyze and form action recommendations out of the research.
