The Creative Campus: The Training, Sustaining, and Presenting of the Performing Arts in American Higher Education
The report of a 2004 Assembly on the role of the arts within colleges and universities. Participants concluded that higher education institutions play a critical role in supporting the arts in general and the performing arts in particular, for which they too often provide the only venues for learning, practicing and enjoying those arts. They concluded further that this role is poorly understood and documented, and consequently vulnerable to pressure on higher-education funding. The report calls for a range of research and stronger advocacy activities on behalf of the arts on campuses, and stronger integration of the arts into the life of campuses.
