Dean's Council for School of Music

The Dean’s Council comprises a core group of advisors and friends dedicated to helping advance the mission of the School of Music by providing advice, counsel and financial support through annual gifts of $5,000 or more. Members serve as strong and enthusiastic ambassadors for the School of Music, raising the visibility of its achievements and its people.

Members provide advice and perspective on the School’s strategic priorities and initiatives. Each gift to the School of Music promotes excellence and enriches learning by providing critical resources for scholarships, student travel experiences, programs, special initiatives, equipment and materials, faculty development, and guest artists. Members of the Dean’s Council will enjoy special opportunities to meet with Dean Saxton Rose, faculty, students and guest artists.
