Stamps is a tight-knit creative community with highly engaged faculty members who act as mentors and advisors to Stamps MFA students.

Stamps faculty2017

Throughout the two-year program, our faculty of artists and scholars work closely with students to shape an intellectually-rigorous program of study, individually suited to each candidate’s areas of interest and expertise.

With six NEA recipients, two Fulbright Scholars, two Guggenheim Fellows, and a Pulitzer Prize winner as just a small sampling of the faculty accomplishments at Stamps, MFA students are able to make powerful, life-long connections to prominent culture-makers of our time.

Stamps MFA Applicants are asked to identify faculty mentors and advisors from the list below. Clicking on each faculty’s name directs you to a profile page. For questions/​concerns, please contact us.
