Columbia is committed to building partnerships in schools and communities across the region in order to build a new generation of engaged artists.
Columbia's School of Fine and Performing Arts connects community-based organizations and schools with teaching artists representing a diverse array of creative practice. Columbia's accomplished faculty and dedicated community partners understand the mutual benefits and importance of strengthening our community, and empowering young creatives across the city.
Columbia's after-school programs bring teaching artists into Chicago Public Schools.
