Performing Arts Faculty Involvement in Fundraising
MetadataShow full item record
This research project explores ways in which development staff associated with performing arts programs at colleges and universities can involve faculty in the fundraising process. I examined this topic by conducting a case study of the UO School of Music and Dance. Through facilitating a series of four meetings between the School of Music and Dance Development Director and a small group of music and dance faculty, I identified opportunities for faculty participation in certain fundraising activities. I collected data through document analysis, semi-structured interviews, and participant observation. Based on my findings, I make recommendations regarding faculty involvement in fundraising at the UO School of Music and Dance and other performing arts academic units in higher education.
