Juilliard Thrives

Community & Social Wellbeing:
Community and Social Wellbeing holistically
embraces diverse social, economic, environmental, cultural, and political environments. These principles can be the difference between a good life and a great one. 

Artistic Identity Wellbeing:

Artistic Identity Wellbeing focuses on wellness associated with the intersections of artist as an identity and identity as artist. The Juilliard School’s community strives to provide time and space for nurturing the artist behind the art. 

Emotional & Physical Wellbeing:

Emotional and Physical Wellbeing focuses on the overall health of an individual (e.g., mind, body, spirit). Emotional and physical health are equally important and need to be taken care of to feel stronger personally and create long-lasting relationships with others.

Financial & Career Wellbeing:

Financial and Career Wellbeing focuses on one's professional purpose in life and how those goals can be attained. Professional purpose can drive financial security and how that might change over time. Financial management can help sustain one’s self through their professional journey and personal endeavors.

The JBSU also seeks to encourage dialogue in the Juilliard community regarding social, political, and world issues, as well as to empower the community to take action and utilize its diversity of talent and creativity to make impactful statements on society and the world at large.

Juilliard Sings

The purpose of the choral group is to give students an opportunity to make music with friends that is outside their instrument. We really think students should sing for a number of reasons: singing with others is proven to boost morale and well-being, since there is a real sense of community. We want to achieve a family feel, where friends come together to make music. In addition, being part of a choir will enhance your sight-reading ability, your ear for music and sense of ensemble. Our choir will give students a chance to sing in different languages.

Korean Christian Association

The Korean Christian Association serves to help Christians grow toward maturity as Disciples of Christ, by study of the Bible, by prayer, and by Christian fellowship. The group exists to help develop healthy human relationships via Bible study.
