Committee on Academic Citizenship


Guided by the belief that music in higher education must be inclusive if we are to create a culture of engagement, equity, collegiality, civility, and collaboration, the Committee on Academic Citizenship illuminates the harmful historical and ongoing effects of coloniality and implicit bias on people and music in our discipline. We work to establish policies and practices that are decidedly antiracist; we recognize the vulnerabilities experienced by our students, our graduate and contingent faculty, and our staff colleagues; we offer support and a sense of belonging within our society; and we offer ways of negotiating the demands of our discipline with the needs and expectations of our students and of the civic community.
