Community and Government Relations (CGR) cultivates and manages institutional relationships, partnerships, and programs that advance the college, mobilize musicians as leaders, and contribute to the cultural, educational, and artistic development of the Boston area and our society. 

Our work is based on the principle that institutions of higher education realize their greatest potential when they serve as fully committed members of the local community. Aligned with the college's philosophy of encouraging our students, faculty, and staff to appreciate and apply music's enormous force for the enrichment of society and intercultural understanding, CGR provides the laboratory where we each test these ideas and put theory into practice. CGR engages Berklee students, alumni, staff, and faculty on campus as well as out in the field through our office’s programs and by supporting Berklee’s Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Community Service Fair, and Gracenotes Volunteer Committee.
