Arts Across Campus (AAC)

Launched in 2001 by an Arts Task Force commissioned by President Emerita Debbie L. Sydow, Ph.D., to assess and improve the existing arts environment on campus, Arts Across Campus (AAC) plans and presents an annual comprehensive arts program.  The program may include a combination of the following in a given year: concerts, theater, lecture, film, rotating art exhibitions, and permanent public art installations. 

This initiative is also characterized by partnerships with successful arts organizations such as Jazz Fest, Symphony Syracuse, Syracuse Stage, The Society for New Music, CNY Regional Scholastic Art and by collaborations with local, regional, and national artists, including OCC students, faculty, and alumni.
