Janklow Arts Leadership Program to Award Professional Development Opportunity
In collaboration with Webb Management Services, a provider of development, planning and consulting services for arts organizations and facilities, the Janklow Arts Leadership Program in The College of Arts and Sciences will award a professional development opportunity to one or more students planning to pursue a career in arts leadership.
The selected students will participate in an extended paid internship that will run concurrently with the student’s academic course work. He or she will work on significant projects, participate in staff conference calls and in-person meetings, and be assigned a mentor to provide guidance throughout the internship.
Mark Nerenhausen, professor of practice and founding director of the Janklow Program, says, “This is a tremendous opportunity for one of our students to gain tangible, real-world experience that will prepare him or her for post-collegiate success, while introducing our program and its talented students to a marquis consulting firm, seeking to employ the next generation of arts leaders.”
Creating and nurturing partnerships is a critical component of the Janklow Program’s overall mission, and, with partners like Webb Management Services, SU students are exposed to opportunities that they otherwise wouldn’t experience.
“We are pleased to extend this opportunity to a Janklow Program student,” says Duncan Webb, president and founder. “In today’s tough economy, it’s more important than ever that graduates enter the workforce with practical, hands-on experience. As a business owner, it’s in my best interest to hire graduates who will be able to hit the ground running from day one. This partnership really is a win-win for the Janklow Program and for Webb Management Services.”
The Janklow Program’s portfolio of partnerships includes some of the nation’s leading arts organizations, such as Broadway Across America, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Classical South Florida and the Luminato Festival. Janklow students have interned at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City Center and Seattle Art Museum.
Students interested in applying for this internship are asked to submit a cover letter and resume to Manerenh@syr.edu.
