Ensuring that we stay ahead of developments in the ID profession through continual assessment and improvement is a huge part of what we do. One of the most powerful ways that we accomplish this is through our Advisory Board. Our board is comprised of three of the most accomplished designers in their fields: Ayse Birsel, Tucker Viemeister, and Dr. Stephen Wilcox. The trio also has a vast amount of experience in design education and as such can translate the trends and developments of our profession into practical advice for the PhilaU ID academic culture.
Ayse, Tucker and Steve recently spent a day and a half on campus visiting our program. The group reviewed the outcomes of the curriculum and met with ID faculty and leadership. Our students also had the opportunity to exchange ideas with the group during a town-hall style open discussion time. The time that the Board spent on campus was most productive and we’re grateful for their insights as we continually seek to make the PhilaU ID experience the best that it can be.
