The Alumni Arts and Society program is a new initiative for all Gallatin alumni and members of the Gallatin community who share a passion for the arts. The program will organize performances, receptions, discussions and art exhibitions in the Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts and in the Gallatin Galleries. These events are designed to highlight the School's interdisciplinary approach to the arts and the value of the artist-scholar model.
The program will serve as a platform to re-connect community members, while honoring the extraordinary creativity, talent and achievements of Gallatin alumni. Administered by Gallatin's Office of Alumni Relations and directed by longtime Gallatin Professor Laurin Raiken, the Alumni Arts & Society program takes its name from Gallatin's original interdisciplinary arts program, which Raiken founded.
To commemorate both Alumni Arts & Society and Professor Raiken's dedication to Gallatin and the students that have been inspired by his teaching and guidance for almost forty years, The Laurin Raiken Fellowship Fund has been established to support MA students who aspire to take part in the unique educational experience offered by the Gallatin School of Individualized Study. The Fund provides a personal and meaningful way for alumni, parents, and friends to help some of our most talented and deserving students. Gallatin takes great pride in its individualized approach, and it strives to make this distinctive education available and accessible to students from all backgrounds, regardless of financial means. To help preserve the School's tradition of opportunity, supporting The Laurin Raiken Fellowship Fund will make a real difference in the lives of Gallatin graduate students.
