ECIAD becomes ECUAD

May 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

My alma-mater (2000) just became a University! The video above shows BC Premier Gordon Campbell making the official announcement.

What does this mean? From the site:

This is one of the most significant changes in the 83-year history of Emily Carr. We will over the next year be planning and implementing the transition to a university of art and design. That transition involves the appointment of a Chancellor, the creation of a Senate, the development of Faculties and the enhancement of our applied research programs. For universities, the advancement of knowledge is as important as its transmission. We will continue to promote and advocate for the arts in BC and internationally. We will strengthen our commitment to sustainability, to holistic learning and pedagogy and to cultural analysis and scholarship. The future has never looked brighter! (Ron Burnett)
