The Ruskin Society

The Ruskin Society, established by SCAD President and Founder Paula Wallace in 2017, is an esteemed group of ambassadors who champion the university's mission and promote SCAD as the preeminent source of knowledge in art and design education.

The society takes its name from artist and philanthropist John Ruskin who declared that art is that in which the hand, the head and the heart go together — a maxim that inspired the university's original logo and articulates SCAD's holistic approach to education.

The Ruskin Society ambassadors, listed below, support SCAD and cultivate resources to advance the university's mission, always with the express purpose of uplifting SCAD students and alumni.
