Office of the President


Welcome to Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I am honored to be President of MassArt and to lead this unique and remarkable institution. 

MassArt is a dynamic learning community where artists, designers, educators and creative problem solvers are prepared to lead the innovation and creative economy and to shape contemporary culture.

This academic year, the MassArt community has resumed our vibrant campus life, with a robust curriculum of in-person, hybrid and remote learning, and with rich and engaging programs that connect us with our community. We are committed to providing both an equitable learning experience and a safe environment for our students, faculty and staff, along with our partners and campus neighbors. 

As the Commonwealth’s art and design college, MassArt is fortunate to have the support and the investment of our legislature and the administration and an extensive network of passionate philanthropic and corporate partners, without whom we could not fulfill our mission. We have an alumni network that is 20,000 strong, including artists, designers, educators, activists, innovators, and entrepreneurs who are leaders in their fields, using their talents and dedication to impact their communities for good. 

Nearly 150 years ago, MassArt was founded on the core belief that art and design have the power to transform our world. As MassArt’s President, I am deeply committed to and energized by that belief. Together our university community will continue to honor that belief as we write the next chapter in this institution’s storied history. 

Join us as we write that next chapter, together.

Dr. Mary K. Grant
