Support the Center
The Center for Jazz Studies ranks among the leading research institutions in the world for the study of jazz; in fact, the educational mission, public programming, and research agendas of the Center are among the most ambitious, intellectually wide-ranging, aesthetically diverse, internationally connected, and socially committed of any research institution. Center for Jazz Studies faculty produce both academic scholarship and cutting-edge music and technologies, and are perhaps the most productive, in scholarly terms, of any research center devoted to jazz and improvisation.
The Center’s programs serve the Columbia community, the community, the nation, and the world. Dedicated to the advancement of jazz, the faculty of the Center is united in the belief that the study of jazz creates new knowledge about the human condition that can enhance not only the humanities and the arts, but also, potentially, any field of human endeavor. For these reasons, we feel that the Center is deserving of your support, and we are grateful to our many supporters, advisors, and friends throughout the years.
