purpose of education and learning in the arts is life enhancing. They contribute to the whole quality of life. This recognition of the purpose of higher education in the development of our people, our society, and our economy is central to our vision.

We encourage and enable all students to achieve the highest intellectual and creative potential and to achieve beyond their expectations. We have created a culture which demands disciplined thinking, supports curiosity, challenges existing ideas and helps to generate new ones. Emily Carr Institute stimulates its students to develop new and innovative ways of thinking and creating. At the same time, we invite students to prepare themselves for life after school. Our curriculum is flexible, personal, multi-disciplinary and based on the learning needs of students.

Emily Carr Institute is dedicated to fostering an educational environment that is professional, practice-oriented and at the same time rooted in history and critical theory.

Our alumni and faculty are among the most influential and important artists, designers and media practitioners working in their respective fields. One of our alumnae, Liz Magor, who is also a Professor at the Institute, recently received a Governor General's Award in Visual Arts, one of Canada's most prestigious honours. Professor Paul Mathieu, one of the most important ceramists in Canada, won the Jean Chalmers National Crafts Award. Most of our professors are practicing artists and/or scholars and aside from their work at Emily Carr, they participate in and advocate for the arts locally and internationally.

Our three degrees in Visual Arts, Media Arts and Design offer a careful balance of studio and academic programming. Students bring experience, vision, energy, discipline and commitment to Emily Carr and this is balanced by what the Institute offers in quality, breadth, vision and choice. Students who come to Emily Carr will find themselves working in studios, classrooms, the concourse gallery, interning with community groups or at a local company. Our co-op program is one of the most active in British Columbia and we have extensive connections throughout the community.

Emily Carr is becoming more and more of an international institution, with students coming from over thirty countries, and exchanges in place with all major art schools and most major universities.

I invite you to explore this website and our calendar, and to discover for yourself why we are known as one of Canada's and British Columbia's most important and prestigious art institutions.

Dr. Ron Burnett, President
