To: Gary Moore, Academic Dean Vermont College of Fine Arts
Tom Greene, President Vermont College of Fine Arts
Like you, as members of the MFA in Visual Art community, we are invested in the continued success of the program.
However, the recent staffing change of the program director, along with your subsequent insistence that proof of VCFA commitment to pedagogy resides in newly created marketing materials, has resulted in our lack of confidence over your understanding of the program’s founding pedagogy of student-centered learning.
Therefore, we are respectfully requesting that you incorporate the founding pedagogy into a mission statement for the MFA in Visual Art program, written in collaboration with faculty, and published by the first day of the next residency, July 30th, 2010.
