With the backing and support of the School and the College of Fine and Applied Arts, we are making a concerted effort to reach out and connect, or reconnect, with as many of our alumni as possible. Our efforts have yielded contact with amazing individuals, who share unique perspectives and stories, reflecting their paths to success after leaving the University of Illinois, and/or stories about professors and fellow students who distinctively inspired them, challenged them, and mentored them.
Our alumni epitomize our proud history and provide the impetus for our future success. The School of Art + Design plays a key role in keeping the importance of the creative process in the forefront in our society. This is a result of extraordinary work being done by our alumni base.
