Meeting the Challenge
Pratt Institute is at a pivotal moment in planning for future generations of students and global citizens. The world has entered a new era in which human imagination, innovation, and creativity are the key to addressing some of our most complex challenges, including diminishing resources, climate change, social inequity, and job creation.
As an institution established to educate artists and creative professionals to be responsible contributors to society, Pratt has a duty to prepare graduates who possess the artistic aptitude, creativity, and flexibility to meet such challenges. And, as one of the nation's preeminent schools for art and design education, Pratt is primed to play a central role in this essential endeavor.
“Pratt trained me to be a creative thinker and effective problem solver, to think outside of the box and to be original.” —Harry Becker, Industrial Design ’68
