Cornell Council for the Arts

The mission of the Cornell Council for the Arts (CCA) is to insure that the arts, and the scholarly activity associated with them, are equal partners in the university’s public image and that the creative products of students and faculty alike are proudly put forward in local, national and international professional arenas. 

Working from the notion of the university as a vast laboratory that affords exceptional experiences through interdisciplinary thinking, making and doing. The CCA is the leading conduit in providing these exceptional experiences in the creative disciplines, including the visual arts, performing arts, creative writing, architecture, and design. 

The CCA is mandated to provide both financial and philosophical support for arts initiatives that carry the highest innovative, experimental and life-changing potential, funding such projects through an annual grant program and cultural projects that encourage interaction with a broad variety of entities both across campus and beyond the university.
