Connecting Hancher to the GE CLAS Core 

Students watching La Santa Cecilia mini-performance
Hancher's campus engagement programs aim to enlighten those hungry for knowledge, energize each individual's creative engine, and cultivate connections between our community and the larger world. To that end, we have created Hancher Links, a handy guide to help faculty and staff make connections between Hancher’s performances and UI courses and programs. Using the university’s GE CLAS Core as a framework, we’ve categorized our performances into groups with shared themes or disciplines.  
 

A number of faculty members have students purchase Hancher tickets as part of their course materials similar to a required textbook. Student tickets for most performances will be just $5 at our Hancher is for Hawkeyes event on August 29 and just $10 during the rest of the year. If you are interested in holding a block of tickets for purchase by the students in your class, contact the Hancher Box Office at (319) 335-1160 or 800-HANCHER. Ask for Leslie or Elizabeth to reserve tickets. 

In addition, Hancher artists often visit classes, give public lectures, hold workshops, participate in panels, meet with faculty members, and show excerpts of their work during their time on campus. Please feel free to contact me to explore any ideas you might have about how your class or department can partner with Hancher in the coming year.  

Thanks!
