Welcome to reCAP 2021!

As we move into a new academic year (2021-22), we have much for which we are grateful. The pandemic challenged us to maintain momentum in the face of daunting experiences and to find a new level of flexibility. And we succeeded. It also opened new possibilities for delivering a great educational experience for our students as we experimented with a blend of in-person and remote classes, critiques and outreach. And we improved because of it.

This next year will start with students and faculty on-campus. As we begin the fall semester, we have over 1,100 students spread over two major campus buildings, with outposts at the Muncie Mall, Madjax – an innovation hub in downtown Muncie, and in downtown Indianapolis at the Elevator Hill tech campus.

We remain committed to advancing our curricular and travel opportunities, and continuing our strong commitment toward preparing graduates who are well-rounded, creatively curious, professionally prepared and globally aware.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to our students’ success through your service on Advisory Boards, in project critiques, as internship employers and donors. We are buoyed by your support and good will. And we extend our goodwill to you as you evolve in response to the same challenges with creativity and grace.
