Founded in 1905, The Juilliard School is a world leader in performing arts education.

Located at Lincoln Center in New York City, Juilliard offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in dance, drama (acting and playwriting), and music (classical, jazz, historical performance, and vocal arts). Currently more than 800 artists from 44 states and 42 countries and regions are enrolled at Juilliard, where they appear in over 700 annual performances in the school’s five theaters; at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully and David Geffen halls and at Carnegie Hall; as well as other venues around New York City, the country, and the world. Beyond its New York campus, Juilliard is defining new directions in global performing arts education for a range of learners and enthusiasts through The Tianjin Juilliard School and K-12 educational curricula.
The Alan D. Marks Center for Career Services and Entrepreneurship was established in 2015 by Juilliard trustee Michael E. Marks and his wife, Carole. The center is named after Michael Marks’s brother, the late Alan D. Marks, a Juilliard graduate (BM '71, piano). The mission of the Alan D. Marks Center is to provide resources, programming, and advisement that will prepare students for a smooth professional transition, allowing them to navigate a successful career in the performing arts and create new opportunities.
