Public Engagement is about propelling students into real world situations that tap their creative potential. We work with community partners to solve and address real, complex problems in our project and problem-based courses. Utilizing project planning and best practice collaborative leadership models, our students take action as citizens, artists and designers. As a result, each student gains the entrepreneurial skills and confidence to directly impact their culture and society during and after college. Considered one of the first programs of its kind in an art school, MECA has been weaving this interdisciplinary and rewarding pedagogy into its curriculum for more than 25 years. Additionally, students can easily minor in Public Engagement as a complement to their major studio choice. Together, we learn the skills of co-creating, designing, building and activating our world to make it better for all.
