About CCRCI Events

Each school year The Center for Career Readiness & Community Impact (CCRCI) produces dozens of informative Setting the Stage panel discussions and hands-on workshops. A range of music professionals and entrepreneurs, including many MSM alumni, share valuable career information. Past workshops are listed below.

Every student is encouraged to attend as many as possible; however, as part of their graduation requirements, students in many majors need to attend at least five workshops over the length of their degree program.
