Arts and Design Alumni Employment and Perspectives on Their Work and Careers

The upheavals of the last few years within higher education and the labor force have catalyzed leaders in arts and design postsecondary education to question assumptions within their institutions about “what it means to be embarking on a career and life” in arts and design today (Novak-Leonard, Dempster, Scotto Adams, & Walters, 2022, p. 9). Ultimately, the questions being raised seek to better understand what constitutes “success” for alumni and who is determining those terms of success in the current, evolving contexts of education and work.
