NEW: RISD Extends President Maeda’s Contract
Friday, March 02, 2012
“Art and design is poised to transform society in the 21st century like science and technology did in the 20th century. The critical thinking and making that have long been taught in RISD’s studios will create a future that is both culturally and economically vibrant,” said Maeda. “I am honored to move forward in my work making a RISD education more financially accessible, supporting our academic programs, and advocating for the importance of adding art and design to turn STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to STEAM.”
Merrill W. Sherman, chair of the Board of Trustees, commented, “We look forward to supporting and working with President Maeda and his team in the coming years as he continues to strengthen us internally as well as strengthen the role RISD plays as a global advocate for art and design.”
