Susan C. Cook

Mead Witter School of Music

The newly established Susan C. Cook Scholarship Fund — created by Mead Witter School of Music alumni, friends, and our Board of Advisers — will provide eligible students with full in-state tuition and will build upon Professor Cook’s 10 years of service as director of the School of Music. 

Professor Cook’s legacy resonates throughout the school, from the students she has mentored to the Hamel Music Center. She oversaw the building and completion of Hamel, which she called “the Wisconsin Idea at its most audible” upon its opening in 2019. During her directorship, Professor Cook developed a larger culture of philanthropy and support and expressed her deep appreciation for the generous philanthropic individuals who have continued to assist music students through scholarships and support of all kinds. 

All gifts made during Fill the Hill will be designated to support students through the Susan C. Cook Scholarship and will ensure Professor Cook’s pivotal contributions to the School of Music will be remembered for generations.
