The James Madison University Center for Inclusive Music Engagement (CIME) is a collaborative space for practitioners, researchers, and community members to facilitate innovative opportunities for all persons—particularly those are often marginalized in institutional music education contexts—to create, perform, respond, and connect with, in, through, and around music in ways they find meaningful.

CIME, championed by Dean George Sparks and Provost Heather Coltman, was established in December 2018 and is housed within the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA). CIME is strategically aligned with CVPA’s “Arts for the Real World” initiative, Provost Coltman’s call for innovation (“disrupting norms and assumptions by embracing an experimental and collaborative mindset in an ever-evolving ecosystem") on our campus, and the university’s strategic plan.
