   605 RESEARCH CENTERS & PROGRAMS

    605.1      OCAP

               In 1997, the idea of an office that would bring together artists, educators, students, and community
               members to form meaningful, sustainable partnerships in the arts was a vision. A
               year later, that vision became the Office of Community Arts Partnerships (OCAP) at Columbia
               College Chicago. It had a staff of two, and occupied a pair of rooms tucked away at the
               end of a seventh-floor hallway. Today, OCAP serves as an international model of what can be
               achieved through collaboration between schools and communities, with programs touching
               the lives of thousands of young people and bringing the concepts of community-based learning,
               arts-integrated curricula, and reciprocal partnerships into the spotlight. It has outgrown its original
               space many times over, and now occupies a new suite of offices in Columbia College’s 33 E.
               Congress building, employing a staff of 35 full- and part-time arts professionals and working
               closely with hundreds of independent artists. Through it all, however, the vision of
                partnerships between College and its communities, built on a commitment to reciprocity and
               sustainability, remains the driving force behind all of OCAP’s program’s and initiatives.

       605.2   CENTER FOR ARTS POLICY

               The Chicago Center for Arts Policy is a "think tank" for arts and cultural issues affiliated with
               Columbia College Chicago. Through research, communication, and the cultivation of discourse,
               the Center considers the multiple ways the arts contribute to building a robust democracy and
               healthy communities, and it advances policies that support these contributions. The Center was
               founded in 1996, inspired by Walt Whitman's essay on the role of the arts and creativity in a
               democracy, "Democratic Vistas." It sponsors public forums for the Chicago community on
               cultural policy, and is completing an important research project on the "informal" arts in Chicago.
               Its Learning and the Arts project focuses on developing policy that supports the role the arts can
               play in improving education and developmental opportunities for children and youth. For more
               information call 312.344.7985

               discuss ideas for projects for which outside funding may be desired. An overview of the process
               by which Columbia College Faculty and Staff can seek funding and other resources can be found
               on the OSP web pages. The director’s office is located in Room 527 in the 600 S. Michigan
               Building.

       605.4   DANCE CENTER

               The Dance Center is home to Chicago's leading presenters of contemporary dance and the area's
               only academic program offering a B.A or B.F.A in dance. The Dance Center is located at 1306 S.

               Chicago dance community.


       605.5   CENTER FOR ASIAN ARTS & MEDIA
               The Center for Asian Arts and Media welcomes and supports all people in their enjoyment and
               appreciation of Asian and Asian American culture. The Center strives to provide equal access to
               the arts and media fields through performances of live music, theater and dance, public

       605.6   INTERNATIONAL LATINO CULTURAL CEN TER
               The mission of the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC) is to develop, promote,
               and increase awareness of Latino cultures among Latinos and other communities through film and
               video events, education, and other art forms. In 1987, Chicago Latino Cinema was founded as a
               nonprofit organization committed to promoting Latino culture and fostering understanding
               between Latinos and other Americans. This was achieved primarily through the Chicago Latino

               REQUEST FORM will be furnished to you by the Bookstore. The Bookstore will buy back
               second-hand books (as long as they are still in print), even if those books will no longer be used by
               instructors and have wholesale value.

               Faculty receive a 10% discount on everything sold at the Bookstore except for sale items. Please
               present your faculty ID card when making purchases.

               the general public through its National and International Conferences on Black Music Research;

               publications, including two scholarly journals, Black Music Research Journal and Lenox Avenue,
               the Journal of Interartistic Inquiry, CBMR Digest Newsletter, and special project newsletters,
               including Kalinda! And Stop-time!; and performances by the Black Music Repertory Ensemble,
               Ensemble Kalinda Chicago, and Ensemble Stop-Time. Central to the Center is CBMR Library
               and Archives, which provides one of the world’s most comprehensive research collections
               covering all idioms in black music. In addition, the Center launches special research initiatives,
               including the Integrative Studies Program, Project Kalinda, and Project Stop-time, and is the host
               to two successive Rockefeller Foundation Resident Fellows.

       610.4   COLLEGE RELATIONS

               The primary function of the College Relations Department is to communicate information about
               Columbia to the general public through the print and electronic media, both trade and consumer.
               The Department’s goal is to interpret the College to the public and to inform various
               constituencies about what makes Columbia newsworthy. Potential students, donors, and
               employers, along with current students and alumni, are just a few of the groups that are the focus
               of departmental activity. The College Relations Department offers this special publicity service to
               the entire Columbia community: faculty, students, administrators, alumni, and trustees. In order to
               be effective, however, the Department depends upon everyone in the College to share information
               about events, activities, performances, exhibitions, screenings, lectures, and, of course, the
               interesting individuals who make up our student body and faculty. Since media deadlines are
               often imposed upon such services, the department needs all information intended for publicity as
               soon as it becomes available, often far in advance of the event. Also, it is important that all
               information meant for the media be channeled through the College Relations Department so that
               Columbia develops a cohesive public image.

       610.5   COLUMBIA COLLEGE CHICAGO ART GALLERY

               The Columbia College Chicago Art Gallery is located on the 1 st floor of the 11th Street campus,

               online public access catalog and resource-sharing network, provides bibliographic access to the
               Columbia collection and to the collections of 45 academic libraries in Illinois.

               Through several cooperative agreements and interlibrary loan services, the Library can provide
               materials not only from its own collection, but from other libraries and information centers as
               well. Reciprocal borrowing agreements with over 50 academic libraries in Illinois will allow
               Columbia College Chicago faculty, staff, and students to borrow materials remotely or onsite with
               a current Columbia College Chicago Identification card. WorldCat and OCLC’s interlibrary loan
               component allows the Library to locate and borrow materials form libraries throughout the United
               States and from several foreign countries

               course instruction; reserve films and videos for showing in classes.

               Librarians assist faculty, identify and select resources, and provide research assistance. Librarians
               provide orientation tours of the Library and workshops on Library resources for faculty. Some
               departments have designated members of the faculty or staff to coordinate for the department such
               services as reserves, audiovisual reservations, library instruction, or collection development.
