Under the Memphis Center, check out the new arts fellowship:

Center for Outreach in the Development of the Arts

CODA (The Center for Outreach in the Development of the Arts) promotes leadership to expand the impact of the arts in the lives of members of the Rhodes community, Memphis, and beyond through innovative thinking.

Supported by the generous grant from the Robert and Rudy Priddy Charitable Trust of Wichita Falls, Texas, CODA Fellows and Rhodes students, faculty, and staff strive to increase engagement in the arts and for everyone to come into contact with the arts and its enrichment.

CODA works with Rhodes College faculty and student groups to integrate the arts into the broader curriculum, enhance the college′s fine arts programs, create a rich arts environment on campus and in the community, and challenge all Rhodes students to view themselves as potential leaders in the arts.

Charles Hughes provides leadership, outreach, and development for CODA as well as support and guidance for the talented CODA Fellows.
