In 2010 SEM completed a five-year Strategic Plan to: 1)
create greater awareness and understanding in the academy and public
sphere of ethnomusicological perspectives; 2) increase ethnomusicology’s
contribution to civic life and public policymaking; 3) facilitate
international communication and collaboration in ethnomusicology; and 4)
strengthen K-12, undergraduate, and graduate education in
ethnomusicology. SEM is pursuing these goals through a variety of
special projects that are being funded by the Sound Future Campaign.
