President Jay Coogan Announces Departure from MCAD

Dear MCAD Community,

I want you to be the first to know that President Jay Coogan has announced his departure from MCAD effective September 14.

We are incredibly grateful for Jay’s nine years of service and the positive impact he has had on this community. Jay has remained committed to the students first mission as evidenced by increased scholarship support, expanded academic offerings, and improved facilities.

Academic Affairs Vice President Karen Wirth will be serving as the interim president and a search committee for MCAD's next president will be led by members of the Board of Trustees.

Jay will be dearly missed but we look forward to continuing to carry out MCAD’s mission of educating the next generation of great artists and designers.

With kind regards,
Greg Heinemann
Chair, MCAD Board of Trustees
