Graphic Design students participated in Creative Conference
This past spring Junior Graphic Design students participated in an interdisciplinary project focused on the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Professors Nancy Wynn, Bryan Bannon and Luis Saenz de Viguera Erkiaga collaboratively developed a project for their three courses: Graphic Design 2, Environmental Ethics, and Introduction to Social Justice.
When finished, students presented their projects at the 2nd Annual Research and Creative Achievement Conference.
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning sponsored the second Annual Merrimack College Research and Creative Achievement Conference Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 from 4 - 6 pm.
Annually, this event is a college wide conference and celebration designed to highlight the academic and creative excellence of Merrimack College student’s work; to foster engagement among faculty members, students, their families, and the community; and to develop presentation skills needed for graduate school and the workplace. Taking an inclusive approach, the conference invites and encourages undergraduate and graduate representation from all four schools and all majors; as such, diverse formats are encouraged.
Additionally, the graphic design students’ completed an oral group presentation on May 9th from 3–6 pm in Sullivan Room 105 for their final exam. Both experiences provided wonderful opportunities for public critique and discussion.
