‘Heartbroken’: 72 USC Alumni Write in Support of Withdrawn MFA Students

From The Los Angeles Times:

 

“As alumni of the University of Southern California Roski School of Art and Design’s Master of Fine Arts Program, we are dismayed to hear that Dean Erica Muhl’s actions and lack of support for the Program have caused the entire graduating class of 2016 to withdraw,” reads the letter, which was released via email and published on a Tumblr account linked to the students who withdrew. 

 

“This was an extraordinary and painful action for these graduate students to have taken, and presents evidence of serious wrongdoing and extensive problems in the School,” the letter continues. “We do not want to see this jewel of the University recklessly discarded, and neither should the President, Provost or the Board of Trustees of the University of Southern California.”
