MassArt at 150: Strategic Plan

Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) has been growing, learning, and leading for 150 years. Strategic planning has given us an opportunity to look deeply and critically at where MassArt is at this moment in time, ask whether we like what we see, identify what we need to change, and set our path for the future.

Through this process, we have sought to clearly articulate what we aim to achieve and why it matters for the growth, health, and wellbeing of our community in our 150th anniversary.
