Stamps School Giv­ing Priorities

Together, we can ensure that the Stamps School will always be a place where cre­ative pas­sions are ignited, where tal­ented stu­dents are empow­ered by excep­tional fac­ulty and where work­ing across dis­ci­plines illu­mi­nates inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to new knowl­edge and global prob­lems. Now more than ever, the world needs our trans­dis­ci­pli­nary col­lab­o­ra­tors, global cit­i­zens, and artists and design­ers who will make a difference.

Join us in our com­mit­ment to the artists and design­ers of tomor­row by sup­port­ing these strate­gic pri­or­i­ties to advance our mis­sion of pre­paring stu­dents to think in new ways, to edu­cate them to become con­cerned world cit­i­zens, and to equip them with the skills for life-long accomplishment.

Stu­dent Support

Ensur­ing suf­fi­cient finan­cial sup­port for our stu­dents in the form of schol­ar­ships, inter­na­tional travel grants, emer­gency funds and career devel­op­ment opportunities.

Stamps scholarship recipients speak about their passion for art and the power of faculty mentorship.

Diver­sity, Equity and Inclu­sion Initiatives

The Stamps Diver­sity, Equity, and Inclu­sion Fund pro­vides fund­ing to stu­dents enrolled in any Stamps pro­gram to sup­port them in pro­fes­sional and per­sonal devel­op­ment related to diver­sity, equity, and inclu­sion. It also pro­vides fund­ing to the School’s pro­gram­matic efforts and activ­i­ties aimed at devel­op­ing an envi­ron­ment that strength­ens the School’s com­mit­ment to DEI and adopts tan­gi­ble, sus­tain­able prac­tices that are guided by our orga­ni­za­tional mis­sion and values. 

Cre­ative Research and Fac­ulty Support

As with uni­ver­sity-based research in other fields, cre­ative research needs fund­ing and sup­port. This sup­port has an impact that extends far beyond our art and design com­mu­ni­ties as our fac­ulty are increas­ingly work­ing with sci­en­tists, doc­tors, infor­ma­tion archi­tects, cli­ma­tol­o­gists and oth­ers to intro­duce new knowl­edge and solve impos­si­ble problems.

Gifts to the Oppor­tu­nity Fund sup­port Stamps fac­ulty who are able to edu­cate the next gen­er­a­tion of cul­ture-mak­ers because they are experts in their field, mak­ing a pos­i­tive impact every­day and bring­ing it back to the class­room. The con­nec­tions fac­ulty mem­bers make, the global net­works they build serve to bring Stamps stu­dents into the lead­ing cul­tural con­ver­sa­tions of our time.

Facil­i­ties and Tech­nol­ogy Support

At Stamps, foun­da­tional skills in art and design remain essen­tial and at the core of our cur­ricu­lum. We rec­og­nize that our stu­dents also need access to the lat­est tech­nolo­gies; stu­dios and class­rooms that encour­age the inter­min­gling of media and dis­ci­plines to trans­form art and design edu­ca­tion here and around the world. Gifts to the Oppor­tu­nity Fund sup­port the need for cut­ting-edge cre­ative tools and tech­nolo­gies and state-of-the-art facil­i­ties and resources to sup­port new ways of learn­ing and making.

Pub­lic Pro­gram Support

Through flag­ship pro­grams like the Penny Stamps Speaker Series and Stamps Gallery, the Stamps School of Art & Design aug­ments the class­room cur­ricu­lum and pro­vides direct access to some of the most influ­en­tial cre­ative minds of the 21st cen­tury. Open to the pub­lic, these spaces pro­vide spaces where the entire com­mu­nity comes together to learn, to expe­ri­ence, and to expand our per­spec­tives.
