Greetings! As we enter our new academic year (our 44th!), we are thrilled to have another amazing group of graduate students joining our vast network of successful leaders in the arts, cultural, and creative sector. Our sector is dynamic and changing, filled with new opportunities and new challenges. In response, our Arts Administration program’s new curriculum ensures that we address the most critical contemporary issues facing the field. We are also developing new approaches and solutions through our faculty’s groundbreaking research, which is being presented and published globally and recognized for its importance. We see a great future for our field knowing that our students and alumni are leading the way.
Several important initiatives under way this year include a newly reconstituted Alumni Council, with leadership provided by Carly Rapaport-Stein (AADM '15). Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know if you'd like to get involved. If you are know of any alums who may be out of touch with the program, please encourage them to reach out to us so they can reconnect.
In addition, we are building a new AADM Alumni Fund that will support Arts Administration students and recent alumni. One important purpose for this fund will be to help current students and recent graduates attend academic and professional conferences where they can present their research and stay in touch with continuing trends in our field. Please watch your email and social media for an opportunity to support this fund so your gift can directly support AADM students and recent alums. Your gift will be part of “The Future is a Place We Make. The Campaign for Drexel” and will directly benefit those who are making the world a better place through their work in the arts and cultural sector. To learn more about the campaign visit future.drexel.edu and keep a look out for more information on how to make sure your gift goes directly to the AADM Alumni Fund.
