Since opening in October 1905 as the Institute of Musical Art, Juilliard has set this country’s standard for education in the performing arts. In 1946, the name Juilliard School of Music became official. In 1968, Juilliard moved to Lincoln Center as the Center’s academic constituent, and officially changed its name to the Juilliard School, reflecting the addition of its Dance Division (1951), and Drama Division (1968). In 2001, Juilliard broke new ground by opening it’s pre-professional Juilliard Institute for Jazz Studies, a collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center. In 2003, Juilliard added its first program for jazz musicians. Juilliard continues to expand its student and alumni services, curriculum, outreach programs, and its long-range planning and $300 million capital Campaign for Juilliard.
