Editor's Letter, 2014 – 2015 Academic Year


The focus this year has been on transforming the department philosophy, culture, mission, identity and facilitating engagement with both the professional worlds of art and design while increasing our on campus engagement. Summer was spent on building a strong foundation for the department to build on. This included purchasing equipment to support the social events throughout the summer and year to come. Building a foundation really started with the visual identity of the Art office. Transforming the office visually through sustainable practices and thinking went a long way to establishing our philosophy.

Fall quarter focused on community building through on campus and off campus events. On campus events included gardening activities, social evenings, dinner, movie nights and field trips. All of these activities involved many hours of outside of the classroom. However the effort paid off, and the students now refer to our department as a family.

Winter quarter especially focused on engagement, both with external creative professionals, and on campus engagement. Participating in on campus events like the SALSU Pumpkin carving, Wellness Fair, University Experience, Creation Weekend, and the Soul Experience gave the department an opportunity to engage with the broader campus community. Welcome to our community!
