History

In 2003, the Interdisciplinary Arts Council was founded in response to a call from both students and administrators for the creation of an organization to represent the entire student body.

 

As the School of the Arts was striving to become more interdisciplinary, the need for a school-wide organization became increasingly clear. Originally called the Graduate Arts Council, a committee of students was formed to promote interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration, foster a nurturing community, and advocate for the needs of the Columbia School of the Arts student body. This committee was charged with disbursing the Student Activities Fund through events, activities, and funding programs.

 

Over the years, the programs and activities of the IAC have continued to expand and change, always with the mission in mind.
