Annual Community Report


Letter from the President

Sanjit Sethi

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As the 19th president of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, I am thrilled to have joined MCAD as it continues to build its role as one of the preeminent art and design institutions in the country. I have quickly witnessed that this dynamic environment encourages learning through making, innovative thinking, an entrepreneurial spirit, and cultivating engaged global citizens.

Over the last twenty years as a professional artist, educator, and cultural leader, I have focused on the powerful roles that the values of creativity, innovation, and empathy play in celebrating culture, narrating the human experience, and creating meaningful social change. Since joining MCAD in July, I have been struck by the profound sense of community that permeates the college. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to meet with students, alumni, faculty, staff, cultural and civic leaders, and college supporters to gain different perspectives and hear what excites people most about MCAD. As I work with a committed team to increase MCAD’s impact and visibility on both the local and global level, we will focus on a few key areas, including:

• Equity: How do we make an MCAD experience available to a broader, more diverse population?

• Learning: How does MCAD support lifelong learners with a commitment that extends beyond graduation?

• Cultural Leadership: How does MCAD educate the next generations of cultural leaders to be experts in their fields of study and address the most pressing issues of our times.

Since 1886, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design has been a beacon of creative light for the greater Twin Cities area. Thanks in large part to donors, MCAD students are given unique opportunities to create and innovate in impactful ways. Without you, these opportunities would not be possible; thank you for your continued support. I am honored to have been chosen to oversee MCAD during this time of positive growth and change. I am proud of all the wonderful things that MCAD has accomplished this past year, and I look forward with optimism for all things to come.

Kind Regards,

Sanjit Sethi
