Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. They will have a survey at the end of the camp/institute as well as an on-line survey for families of the New Ulm Suzuki School of Music at the end of the fall semester. A parent volunteer will assist the directors to complete this task.
