The Five-Point Plan: A Practical Framework for Campus Cultural Centers
Jenkins, Toby S.
About Campus, v13 n2 p25-28 May-Jun 2008
This article features Paul Robeson Cultural Center (PRCC) at Pennsylvania State University, which uses a model of cultural education and engagement to design and deliver programs and services committed to enhancing the university's cultural climate. This article shares a cultural programming framework that was used to steward change and growth in the PRCC, that will be helpful to cultural centers that struggle for resources and institutional support. The PRCC framework is a five-pronged programming and service delivery strategy developed by the author and his colleague, Clayton Walton, in the Tri-Sector Cultural Practitioners Model. These components are: (1) cultural education; (2) cultural engagement; (3) cultural student development; (4) cultural community building; and (5) cultural environment enhancement.
