ANNOUNCING NEW MIAD ALUMNI COORDINATOR
We are pleased to announce the addition of Katherine Lanigan as the new part-time Alumni Coordinator at MIAD. This position was added within the existing department budget to foster dedicated hours to alumni engagement.
 
Katherine has worked in the Advertising, Higher Education, and Tech industries.  She joins us from Parsons, The New School for Design, where she managed employer outreach for the school, which included extensive relationships with alumni and event management.
 
Katherine will act as a central point of support to the Alumni Council. She will also
communicate with alumni through the monthly e-newsletter and coordinate alumni events.
 
Josh Hintz ’12 (Var Gallery) continues his steadfast leadership as the President of the Layton/MSA/MIAD Alumni Council and as Alumni Representative on the Board of Trustees. He has already shared his vision with Katherine.

Katherine looks forward to meeting you and to hearing your thoughts on
how we can continue to foster a strong alumni community in the Milwaukee area and
beyond. Please see the 3-minute alumni survey below.
-Vivian Rothschild, MIAD Vice President of Development and Communications
