And so, it is nothing short of scandalous (and utterly baffling) that the university administration, led by recently appointed and conspicuously unqualified Dean Erica Muhl, has elected to squander, self-destructively, the school’s significant reputation, unique standing, and immense so-called “cultural capital” by antagonizing faculty and students alike in a misguided structural overhaul that valorizes neo-liberal corporate clichés of “disruption” over critical discourse, intellection, and deep studio practice. Caught in the middle of such tumult, the first-year MFA students collectively reevaluate their course of study.

I’m proud of these students for standing up for what was right even at great personal and professional cost to themselves.
