Dear MCAD Community,
I am excited to share the news that the Board of Trustees has asked me to continue as President of MCAD through May of 2020. It is a privilege to lead this wonderful college of art and design and to work with all its dedicated board members, faculty, staff, and students.
I am proud of the many accomplishments we have achieved together. Most notably, our Next/Now Campaign that raised nearly $24M. This was a fundraising milestone for MCAD.
Two capstones of our work together that have changed the face of our campus and enhanced our academic programs are M/Lab and E/Studio. In addition, the new product design program, the revamped BSc degree, now Entrepreneurial Studies, our two online MA’s and four new minors are all evidence of the expanding value of MCAD’s art and design education. These projects have ensured that our facilities and programs are state-of-the-art and our students are prepared for their careers.
Our motto of Students First is a call to ensure our campus is welcoming and accessible to all and to continuing our dedication to increasing scholarships and growing our endowment. This is our common mission and the results we have achieved speak to the cooperative spirit of MCAD.
I believe MCAD’s reputation and the contributions it makes to the vitality of this community have never been stronger. I look forward to sustaining our fundraising momentum and our sound fiscal management of the college and building our list of accomplishments over the next two years.
