Mellon Foundation, to gauge college student attitudes towards and participation in the performing arts, with a focus on the particular challenges of classical music. The project with culminate with a symposium in June 2013 on the Dartmouth campus, which will determine innovative steps for deepening student engagement in the arts on college campuses.
