CFA Initiatives

Keyword Initiative

Each year, the College of Fine Arts selects a Keyword to serve as a springboard for discussion and programming within the academic year. In marking its 60th anniversary, Boston University College of Fine Arts is proud to invite the BU and global community in a creative discussion and call to action around the 2014–2015 KEYWORD: INTERSECT.

The Keyword Initiative is funded in part by Nancy Livingston (COM’69) and her husband, Fred Levin, through the Shenson Foundation, in memory of Ben and A. Jess Shenson.

Minor in Arts Leadership

The minor in Arts Leadership is designed to provide students with the practical and strategic skills to become leaders in the arts and is designed to meet the needs of students in all BU colleges. Course selection is intentionally flexible in order to serve not only a broad constituency but also to allow students to hone leadership and thinking skills in particular areas of interest, including arts entrepreneurship, arts administration, and arts activism.
