U-M Faculty Programs
UMS believes that experiences with the performing arts can enrich and enliven academic inquiry across all disciplines. As we continue to expand and strengthen our long-standing and distinctive partnership with the University of Michigan, we are committed to creating uncommon learning opportunities for students and faculty both in and outside the classroom.
The Education and Community Engagement Department at UMS contributes to the rich intellectual life of the University of Michigan in a number of ways:
- Providing master classes with world-class artists for pre-professional students in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
- Offering our signature course “Engaging Performance” to introduce U-M undergraduate students to the performing arts.
- Partnering with the Medical School to animate the Medical Arts program.
- Working with dozens of individual faculty members and units on campus to link specific UMS performances to courses across the curriculum.
