Meet the Academic Steering Committee
Statement of Purpose
The Academic Steering Committee will identify what is needed to ensure that the Academy constantly remains at the forefront in preparing students to develop portfolios that are relevant to meet the needs of the global marketplace:
- Contribute ideas for Academy-wide curriculum initiatives and improvements.
- Identify innovative curricular and cross-departmental opportunities.
- Engage in future thinking on the curriculum. (i.e. Where are we going to be in the next five years?)
- Serve as a think tank on the intersection of art and technology and identify emerging technologies and trends to enable the Academy to stay ahead of the curve.
The Academic Steering Committee will hear issues dealing with department and curriculum concerns as well as brilliant new ideas for the University. Feel free to contact any member listed below or e-mail us at: email@example.com.
