Art alumni: participate in national online survey

Alfred University’s School of Art and Design, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Career Development Center are collaborating to with the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) to administer a one-of-a-kind survey that explores the lives of arts alumni nationwide.

This fall, all arts graduates of Alfred University will receive an email invitation to participate in the on-line survey. By verifying their current email address with the Career Development Center (, alumni can be sure not to miss their chance to share their experiences and help shape the future of arts education across the country and at Alfred University.

After completing the survey, alumni will have access to a site where they can see how their experience compares with those of other arts graduates across North America. They can see where arts graduates live, where they work, what they earn and how their arts educations have influenced their lives.

The time AU alumni spend sharing their experiences will help Alfred University, along with many other participating institutions across the country,  better prepare students for success, whether they stay in the arts or use what they’ve learned in other professional fields.

SNAAP is supported by grants from the Surdna Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other foundations.
