The Institute has a relationship with the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, where students can study in an eight credit program. The institute is currently under the artistic direction of Anna Strasberg, Lee Strasberg's widow.
^ Although he would attain life membership in the Actors Studio during Strasberg's reign, Rourke never officially attended the Institute; hence his absence from the Institute's online list of notable alumni. (Perhaps contributing as well was Rourke's well documented disdain for Strasberg.) Starting in the mid-1970s, however, he did audit the classes taught there and at CCNY by Sandra Seacat, with whom he was studying privately at the time.
