The class of 2020

This spring, students, faculty, and staff navigated the unexpected challenge of moving all our courses online due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The studios were shuttered, the campus was closed, and our physical collaborations were replaced with a screen. We have faced an unprecedented time and have been asked to do unprecedented work. Through it all we continue to work, create, and build community. It has been incredibly impressive to witness the innovative solutions, personal resolve, and speed with which our faculty and students have adapted to online instruction. It’s clearly not been ideal but it has taught us much about what’s possible, revealing new and interesting ways to engage in creative study.

The Class of 2020 has arrived at graduation unlike any class before them, but we couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments. They will leave us as creative leaders, driven change-makers, and life-long learners.
