Suffolk University constantly innovates both its academic offerings and campus facilities to keep pace with evolving disciplines.
The university recently opened fully remodeled and reimagined art and design spaces on four floors of its Frank Sawyer Building. Students now enjoy a thoughtfully transformed space purpose-built for the needs of working art students—from “tech-flex” classrooms lined with high-powered design computers to foundation studios full of easels and flooded with natural light. These resources are now tightly integrated into a building shared by programs as diverse and the theater department and business school.
Suffolk’s art and design professors collaborate with faculty from other departments to develop interdisciplinary courses that infuse visual thinking into a broader curriculum, and help art students find practical applications for their work through exposure to different disciplines. This kind of boundary-breaking education encourages critical thinking and creative problem solving, preparing students for a professional world where the best solutions are often found in unexpected ways.
