Holistic Approach
For someone to become a really powerful designer, they not only need a very strong foundation in design, safety, and ergonomics, they need to be centered in themselves.

Diversity Council

Dr. Joyce F. BrownOne of the key goals of the FIT Strategic Plan is to create a campus that is “purposefully diverse”---one which, through its students, faculty and staff---reflects the pluralistic city, nation and world in which we live.  Diversity is a fact of life---a powerful source of enrichment, a vital tool in a competitive marketplace, and a cause for celebration. Indeed, it is a critical element in fulfilling FIT’s mission to prepare students with the kind of global perspective they will need for success.  But as a community, we cannot just pay lip service to it. That is why I established the FIT Diversity Council. With its ambitious goals and initiatives---and mission to “foster a climate of inclusion within the campus community”---it plays a primary role in our ongoing efforts to ensure diversity in all that we do.
