IMFA campaign for World Wildlife Fund explains why buying FSC is important for forests and wildlife

Curious why buying FSC-certified products matters for tigers and forests? If so, check out “Switch to FSC-certified products and save tigers,” a campaign my students conceptualized, designed, and developed for World Wildlife Fund. Visit the page, share the tweets, and spread the message about #FSC sustainable wood products!

The “Switch to FSC-certified products and save tigers” campaign launched on March 20, 2015, in advance of World Forestry Day, and was also highlighted in the April 17, 2015, edition of  WWF’s E-News, which has over 3 million subscribers.

 

During Fall 2014 I had the unique opportunity to teach the inaugural UM CoLab course, a core course in our MFA in Interactive Media program in which students spend part of the semester researching, brainstorming, and iterating on a project concept and then spend the remaining part of the semester designing and developing it for a partner client. We were extremely fortunate to partner with the U.S. chapter of World Wildlife Fund, headquartered in Washington, D.C., and make a true impact advocating for an important environmental concern and simple call to action. Click here to read about early happenings from this course.

 

UM Interactive Media MFA Among Princeton Review’s Top Graduate Game Design Programs

The School of Communications Interactive Media Master of Fine Arts program has earned a No. 24 ranking on The Princeton Review’s 2014 list of the best graduate schools to study video game design. The Princeton Review chose the schools based on a survey it conducted in Fall 2013 of 150 programs at institutions offering video game design coursework or degrees in the United States, Canada, and some countries abroad.

It’s an honor to have our Interactive Media program on this list and in such great company (including my alma mater Parsons) in our first year. We look forward to supporting the many amazing game projects that will come out of our Interactive Media program!
