The Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts is the premier arts outreach program at the University of California, Riverside. Gluck celebrated 20 years of arts outreach to the greater Riverside communities in 2016-2017! The Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside brings talented UCR students into the most needed areas of the Riverside community to teach and perform the arts for free. School-aged children receive powerful and memorable classroom visits from enthusiastic University students who give them direct exposure to visual arts, art history, music, dance, and writing experiences that they would not otherwise have. The Gluck Fellows Program also facilitates visits to the UCR campus for events that give school children the opportunity to 'feel at home' on campus and be inspired to consider pursuing a college education and a lifetime in the arts. All events sponsored by the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside are made possible through the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation.
Each year, the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts provides fellowships to exceptional UC Riverside undergraduate and graduate students to conduct arts-related presentations, performances, and workshops in Riverside County schools, residential facilities for elderly care, and community centers including museums and libraries. Participating UCR departments include Art, Creative Writing and Creative Writing for the Performing Arts, Dance, History of Art, Music, and Theatre, as well as UCR ARTS.Since its inception at UC Riverside in 1996, the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts continues to follow its mission and goals of integrating the arts within the broader community. UC Riverside remains committed to the Program's target constituents, and continues to avail itself of the excellent faculty and student resources in the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.
