Mission Statement

The goals of the JET office are to guide and lead work that achieves systemic equity in all areas of the educational institution. Transformative Teaching and Learning methodologies and curricula will be supported with new frameworks of understanding that engage faculty, staff, students, and community partners. In these efforts, Pathways to art and design education will also evolve to create access and opportunity through collaborative internal and external partnerships. Other areas of focus will include Retention and Mentoring efforts that create a student ready campus that embraces the dignity of all members of the MassArt community.
