Description

In a heartfelt “breakup letter” addressed to RISD, undergraduate student Emma Werowinski 18 TX urged fellow graduates to “continue to pay attention, critique and question everything.” She suggested that RISD’s faculty and administration work to implement the positive changes spelled out in the SEI Action Plan more quickly. And she praised her fellow graduates’ dedication to making real cultural change on campus. “We collaborated outside of class to make work that is meaningful to us,” she noted. “We brought in speakers of diverse backgrounds and perspectives, [and] we reminded each other that physical and mental health is always more important than schoolwork.”
