Emily Carr to become "Emily Carr University of Art + Design"

April 29, 2008

The BC government announced on Monday it will grant university status to the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design. The school will be known as the Emily Carr University of Art + Design. For the past 10 years, the school's president has been working toward the status change. For more than 20 years, Emily Carr has been granting undergraduate degrees and, more recently, graduate degrees. The president believes the university designation will attract higher-calibre students and faculty, and give the school access to more sources of funding. Globe and Mail | ECIAD News Release
