Center for Jazz Studies - Columbia University
The Harlem Eye/Performance Profile: Paula West, On the Eve of Greatness!
The mission of Columbia University’s Center for Jazz Studies is to include jazz as a part of Columbia University’s core curriculum for the twenty-first century. In keeping with the great mission of Columbia University as a whole, the Center for Jazz Studies is committed to offering students a “broad range of innovative multidisciplinary programs, and through the earnest exploration of difficult questions,” to provide “students from the United States and around the world with the depth of understanding and intellectual flexibility they need to respond to the challenges in the years to come.”* Our mission, simply put, is to assert that to be an educated person in the new millennium means understanding jazz music as part of a complete arts and sciences curriculum, as indispensable equipment for living in our time.
