A Farewell from Annie Hyma  

Steve Hyma ’09 (Industrial Design) and I are excited to share that we will be welcoming a “Future Artist” into our lives in early May.


It is with great sadness but immense personal joy that I share with you that my last day at MIAD is April 22. It has been a wonderful year rejoining the MIAD community professionally and personally as Manager of Alumni Engagement & Development Events.

With this change, I would like to share with you the position announcement for Manager of Alumni Engagement & Development Events

I am proud to be a MIAD alumna and plan to stay involved with the college in the future. Thank you all so much for sharing the creative ways you are changing not only the Milwaukee community but the world around us every day.
