Emily Carr University of Art + Design
We mark the 2015/’16 academic year by celebrating our 90th Anniversary of innovative and transformative teaching. We take pride in the vision, dedication, passion and contribution to the local, national and global art, design and media communities. We take our place among the top post-secondary art, media and design institutions in Canada and we embrace our growing global stature among our esteemed educational peers. We continue to pursue excellence in honour of our namesake artist Emily Carr, with her true spirit of the avant-garde – fostering creativity, experimentation and innovation, with respect and reverence for diversity and indigenous cultures. We do this via our unwavering commitment to be student-centred and research-focused, keenly engaged with our student body, teaching and research faculty, staff and our community. Our partnerships in the business, philanthropic, arts, performance and general community have never garnered more support, been more inspirational or more gratifying than they are today. We go forward, keenly aware of the strength of our shared history and collectively excited by the vision for the future of our institution.
