Dean
Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design

The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design is a hub of vibrant activity this fall. We recently welcomed 142 first-year students to campus and have more than 700 returning to continue developing their creative practice. At Stamps, we work to ensure each student is a future colleague and global citizen whose questions, aspirations, and vision are valued. These students are poised to change the world through creativity and innovation, and I am honored to share in their journey as dean at the Stamps School.

When I joined the Stamps School in July, it was clear to me that donors like you are making a critical difference in the lives of our students. Your kindness demonstrates your appreciation of the role creative endeavors play in solving society’s most pressing challenges, and how a Stamps education prepares students to be leaders in building healthier communities. When you make a gift, each dollar funds initiatives that develop a unique educational experience that is unparalleled and offers students the opportunity to fully realize a transformational period of their lives.

We are at a pivotal moment in our history as we continue to elevate the global reputation of the school as the leader in art and design education. This year, we mark the 10th anniversary of the naming of our school. As we celebrate this milestone and look towards the next decade, it is with a shared belief that art and design education is fundamental to the mission of the public research university. Together, we will continue to produce new discoveries that change what is possible for the future.

The philanthropic gestures offered by our community members provide a powerful opportunity to collectively build the world’s premier school of art and design. As we move forward, Stamps School faculty, staff, and students will work side-by-side to ask how creative practice thinking and making can provide space to accelerate innovations that span the intellectual and applied inquiries one finds across the University of Michigan. We will establish a new paradigm that is based on art and design thought processes that will ultimately contribute to a better society.

Making a donation to Stamps is a tangible commitment to building a better future, a future without limits. Today, I invite you to renew your support for the Stamps School. Your gift makes an important difference in helping our students reach the highest levels of personal and professional success. Join us in our mission of creating the leading art and design school in the world.

With gratitude,
