The mission of the Center for Cultural Affairs at the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs is to advance the understanding of the place of arts and culture in public life. The center will facilitate a network of scholars and practitioners interested in advancing cultural affairs research, produce high-quality and relevant research on arts and cultural policy and management issues, and serve as a resource to the arts and cultural sector. 

Ph.D. Fellowships in Cultural Affairs

The Center for Cultural Affairs has established a fellowship program that recruits students specifically interested in cultural affairs research through the Ph.D. Public Affairs program at the O’Neill School. Fellows are supported by the CCA throughout their coursework and dissertation stage. We are now recruiting fellows for the 2021-2022 academic year.
