President Kimpton - Protect the Integrity of Interlochen and the Legacy of Joe Maddy

Recently the administration of Interlochen Center for the Arts has taken a number of actions that we believe threaten the integrity of this important institution and the quality of education provided to its vibrant young artists. From the termination of beloved teachers, lack of transparency in financial and personnel decisions, over-enrollment and soaring tuition, as well as many more issues of concern, many in the community feel that Interlochen is heading in the wrong direction. We must encourage President Kimpton and his administration to engage in an inclusive and open dialogue with the broad Interlochen community in order to implement real, tangible and systemic reform.
