January 9, 2018 – Dr. Ron Burnett, CM, O.B.C., President & Vice Chancellor, Emily Carr University of Art + Design

To experiment and play and critique and make and then to turn creative work into art or product or process, that is the essence of the engagement of students with our community of staff and faculty. Our academic programs in art, design and media are designed to be flexible and to provide students with many different pathways to learning and research. We are focused on empowering our students to gain the knowledge they need to succeed in the world around us. We are here to serve our communities of interest from the cultural sector to government to industry. We connect ideas and action, new knowledge and change, new media and all forms of artistic expression with the central goal of creating and sustaining an inclusive culture based on humanistic ideas and diverse viewpoints.

Creativity is dependent on ideas and critical thinking. We nurture multidisciplinary learning and research and student engagement to make sure that everyone in our community realizes their full potential. Our mission is to educate the best artists, designers and media practitioners in the world. Our new campus is the physical representation of that goal and will allow students of all ages, all disciplines and viewpoints to succeed in their chosen profession and to achieve excellence in a supportive and exciting environment.

– Dr. Ron Burnett, C.M., O.B.C., Chevalier, RCA
