Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2012–2013 SNAAP survey.
SNAAP is the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project, an annual online survey, data management, and institutional improvement system designed to enhance the impact of art school education. As an Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) institution, SFAI joined with other North American art schools to participate in the SNAAP survey. We asked 2,000 alums to take the survey to better understand the experiences and needs of the alumni community and increase engagement through volunteerism and overall giving. The survey will also provide SFAI with comparative data that will serve as benchmarks for measuring our alumni’s successes and satisfaction.
Based on the results of the most recent survey, SFAI has begun to host educational panels and workshops by alumni for both alumni and students, focusing on career building, portfolio reviewing, and networking opportunities. The kick-off event last spring—a panel with alumni who have founded their own exhibition spaces—welcomed alumni and students for a lively two-hour discussion. Stay tuned for more information!
