College Partnership Program
The Jacob’s Pillow College Partnership Program exists to support dance as a means of research, discourse, and artistic expression for faculty, artists, scholars, and students – virtually and on the Jacob's Pillow campus.
Join and shape the next generation of dance professionals
At a time when many faculty members are shifting between in-person instruction and virtual and hybrid solutions, Jacob’s Pillow has essential resources to support curriculum and learning. Joining the College Partnership Program offers all faculty, staff, students, and departments access to these resources.
In addition to public access to the Online Jacob’s Pillow Archives featuring collections of moving images, essays, exhibits, correspondence, photographs, and Festival programs, partnership benefits and events include:
• Consultations with archivists for faculty on research and curriculum design
• Opportunity to apply for College Partnership Program Faculty Research Fellowship. Includes housing for up to two weeks, stipend, access to Archives and archivist support.
• Priority notification of Pillow opportunities including Jacob’s Pillow Intern and Administrative Fellowship Program positions, The School at Jacob’s Pillow professional advancement programs, and special workshops and classes year-round
