Rochester in the News
Huffington Post (Oct. 22)
Eastman Scores With Comic Books, Martyrdom, and Claude Achille Debussy
“The Eastman School of Music did Claude Debussy and Rochester, New York, proud this past weekend with an array of cultural presentations culminating in a multimedia recreation of the life, times, and musical excitement that changed the course of classical music history.”

Rochester Business Journal (Oct. 12)
Bursting the Academic Bubble
Joel Seligman leads a top research university, one that plays an outsized role in bringing research dollars to the Rochester region. But he sees his responsibilities as extending well beyond the University’s campus and medical center. “Universities are always works in progress,” Seligman says. “I’ve been fortunate to work with a leadership department and a board that’s just as hungry today as in 2005 when I first started out. Now we’re feeling some pride in what we’ve started, whether it’s the capital campaign or improved diversity or improved student metrics, and our challenge now is to build on that momentum.”
