Greetings! And welcome back to students, faculty and staff to the 2016-2017 academic year. The beginning of the semester is always full of promise and this is a particularly exciting time for the Art and Design Department!
In the last two years, we have gone through tremendous transformations. We changed our name to Art and Design and completed a major curriculum overhaul. This is strengthening our concentrations and better reflecting the growth of the department in the graphic design area. The move to Mahoney, renovations of Dugan basement and new faculty lines – our faculty has expanded with several new full time hires– are all evidence of our success. So we are in excellent shape to start the semester. I look forward to sharing a creative and productive year with all of you!
