Student Forum with Nate Young

Staying competitive and keeping education relevant are two of College President Richard Koshalek’s top priorities. Throughout the last year Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer Nate Young has spoken about the competition Art Center faces and how to stay relevant in the future.
He has spoken with other design school and university alumni and business leaders, as well as conducted his own research on the future of design education. It has become clear that in order for Art Center to maintain its competitive edge we need to reorganize and restructure the education team. Nate will be presenting to students, “Designing our Future,” a new organizational plan for education at Art Center. This plan lays the directional foundation for education that will result in learning and valuable degrees for students, now and in years to come.
