About the Student Advisory Council

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is one of the world’s leading cultural institutions, and we recognize the tremendous value that students bring to our artistic programs and to initiatives that expand our audiences.

The Student Advisory Council (SAC) is designed to help strengthen the presence of undergraduate and graduate students across all levels of Lincoln Center. This small group of students will function as ambassadors to Lincoln Center, work to raise awareness of Lincoln Center’s programming at their universities, and assist in coordinating student activities at Lincoln Center.

Applications for 2017–2018 are due Monday, September 18, 2017.
