The 2018-19 academic year marked the 50th Anniversary of an exceptional partnership between Case Western Reserve University and The Cleveland Institute of Music. Since 1968, these two distinguished institutions have participated in an integrated music program at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The JMP allows students at both institutions to take advantage of the resources of a major research university in the context of a liberal arts education as well as those of a leading conservatory. Read about the partnership.

Students enrolled at CWRU take music lessons and music theory courses taught by CIM faculty, while students enrolled at CIM take music history, music education, and general education courses taught by CWRU faculty.

Both CWRU and CIM are located in University Circle, giving students access to a wealth of cultural institutions within a short walking distance from campus.
