2015 - Present

The advancement of learning through the free expression of ideas and pursuit of research and artistic creation

Today, the Schulich School of Music offers 50 different programs in research and performance and puts on almost 700 concerts and events annually, several of which are webcast by Schulich’s own faculty and students. The School is made up of 860 students (32% from Quebec, 33% from the rest of Canada, and 35% international), 200 faculty members, and is consistently named the top performing arts school in Canada by QS University Rankings.

The newly renovated MMR, with the help of more than $17 million in grants from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Government of Quebec and the Fonds de Recherche du Québec (FRQ), and a substantial contribution from private philanthropy, launches the Schulich School of Music and CIRMMT into the future to redefine and transform the way we compose, listen, and perform music. Musicians, scientists, and engineers will join forces to gain a better understanding of the influence that music can have on the physical, psychological and neurological well-being of individuals.

The mission of the Schulich School of Music is to offer the highest calibre of teaching and learning, grounded in exceptional performance and research, in an inclusive and inspiring environment. Under the direction of Dean Brenda Ravenscroft, the Schulich School of Music’s new Strategic Plan outlines its plans for the future.
