I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has approved a revised vision statement for our combined institution:

As the preeminent institute of contemporary music and the performing arts, Berklee will transform arts education and empower artists to better our world. Building an inclusive culture that promotes diversity in all its forms, we will nurture the growth of the world’s most inspired artists in music, theater, and dance so they may fully realize their creative and career potential. Berklee will forge new connections among art forms, musical traditions, technologies, and institutions, creating a dynamic global network that fosters innovation, collaboration, and community.
Please plan to join me for my annual State of the College and Conservatory presentation where I will discuss the strategy for bringing this vision to life. I will focus on four developing themes for this strategy: integration, innovation, infrastructure, and inclusion. We are currently working to craft our first three-year strategic plan toward achieving our vision for Berklee in 2025, and as this is a work in progress, we want to hear your ideas about initiatives we should undertake that will contribute positively toward these themes.

Before the presentation, I ask that you review these themes and submit your ideas. They can be accessed via the Berklee College of Music site here and via the Boston Conservatory at Berklee site here.

There are three options to attend the State of the College and Conservatory address:
