Curricular: Points of Pride

The Janklow Program trains leaders.  Our program provides training in the business skills required to create and manage arts organizations, but understands that success in the arts is more than business plans and management.  We are distinctive because we explore all the arts in their full civic contexts, not just as isolated disciplines.  This approach underscores our belief that an arts organization should produce great works and serve as an anchor institution in its community--promoting quality of life, educational excellence, and sustained economic development.

The Janklow Program is:

Interdisciplinary
. We are administered by the Department of Art and Music Histories in SU’s College of Arts and Sciences, and cooperate closely with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, the College of Law, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, and the Whitman School of Management.

Comprehensive
. We develop core competencies in leadership and administration, marketing and public relations, law and public policy, financial management, entrepreneurship, non-profit management, business plans, and budgeting.

An Industry Leader
. We are part of a national research institution that includes The SU Humanities Center, The Central New York Humanities Corridor (in partnership with Cornell University and the University of Rochester), and the Imagining America national consortium. We are forming a distinguished advisory board whose members will engage students with capstone projects, lectures and symposia, and internships.
