Each year the Student Composer Association is operated by two to three graduate students from the Jacobs School of Music composition department. The officers ensure that the initiatives and projects of SCA are carried out in complement to the existing activities of the composition department. Funding for SCA initiatives is drawn primarily from grants awarded by the IUSA (Indiana University Student Association) and SCA is very grateful for their ongoing annual support. The SCA produces an annual "Hammer & Nail" project, a collaboration between composers and other groups. Past projects have included guitarists & harpists. Since 2005, "Hammer & Nail" has produced collaborations between composers and choreographers from HYPER's modern dance program; the very successful performances have been held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theatre in downtown Bloomington. The SCA also assists in bringing guest composers to campus and hosting receptions for prospective students.
