2016 President's Report
by Emily Carr University
Message from the President + Vice-Chancellor
Emily Carr University of Art + Design is in the midst of a significant transformation and there has never been a more exciting time to be part of our community.
In the last year we have broken ground on our new state-of–the-art campus at Great Northern Way, expanded our impact through local and international partnerships, and were named the top art + design university in Canada by the QS World University Rankings and by Red Dot.
This academic year, Emily Carr University marks its 90th anniversary and celebrates its place as one of the longest standing post-secondary institutions in B.C. As part of these celebrations we installed our new Chancellor, Geoff Plant, and will be hosting various community events and continuing to engage our research partners and distinguished alumni world-wide.
Within the pages of this report you will see stories of inspiration and innovation; snapshots of the next generation of thought leaders in art and design, and the impact of their work, both locally and globally.
As we move into the future, we will continue to celebrate our belief that creativity will always be our greatest natural resource. I invite you to join us as we shape the future of our city, our province and our country.
- Dr. Ron Burnett C.M., O.B.C., CHEVALIER DE L’ORDRE DES ARTS ET DES LETTRES, RCA
