Thank you!

To the MCAD community,

Thank you for your participation, help, and talent this past Saturday at the Kmart mural. It was a heartfelt reunion for some of you that I haven't seen in a while and also a great opportunity to meet some current students! Taking part in the community we operate in is important to ensuring we show our solidarity and support during these hard times. Art heals and this is our time and responsibility to help in that effort.

Make, Mend, Join: An online space for the MCAD Community

Wednesdays, 12:00–1:00 p.m.

In light of the grief that has overtaken our beloved cities following the murder of George Floyd, we would like to designate this weekly online space for the MCAD community to check in with one another. We need ways of maintaining ties during a time when we are physically apart and dealing with a range of traumas. This group is open to students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Although it is no longer craft-focused, you are welcome to work on a project while we chat and talk.

Thoughts for the MCAD Community on the George Floyd Tragedy

Dear MCAD Community,

Like all of you, I am deeply disturbed by the tragic death of George Floyd on Monday. As a person of color and as a parent, it is hard for me not to feel deep anguish and alarm at these events. While I unequivocally support that justice must be served for George Floyd and his family, justice and equity was something owed to him and his family a long time ago–well before the moment of his passing.

New Vice President of Academic Affairs

Dear MCAD Community,

I am pleased to announce the hiring of Robert Ransick as the next Vice President of Academic Affairs. As of July 1, Ransick will replace retiring Vice President Karen Wirth, who began her career at MCAD in the early 1990s and also served as interim president for the 2018-2019 academic year. When we can be together in person, I look forward to honoring Karen for her invaluable contributions to the college.

April 24, 2020 Update from President Sethi

Dear MCAD Community,

First, I want to thank you for taking your time to participate in the on-line forums that have taken place over the last two weeks. We have had the chance to hear directly from our graduating seniors, non-graduating undergrad students, and our masters candidates. This afternoon we hosted a forum for our MCAD staff. With one more on next week’s schedule for our faculty, we would like to continue these conversations to keep the lines of communication open and support idea sharing within our community.
