Dean Lorraine Justice has announced that Professor Anne Ghory-Goodman has been named Visiting Scholar in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences.
Ghory-Goodman comes to RIT as Professor Emeritus from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Previously she was a Professor, Department Chair, and Director of Graduate Studies during nineteen years at the University of Cincinnati, one of America’s premier graphic design schools. In that capacity she had been an instrumental figure in the emerging careers of a number of major American designers including Pentagram partner, Michael Bierut. Her own design practice has included leadership roles in textbook publishing and children’s literature in Boston.
Selected for the first undergraduate class including women at Yale University, Ghory-Goodman also received a graduate degree from the Yale School of Art and later pursued advanced study at the School of Design in Basel, Switzerland.
Ghory-Goodman’s career has included many awards and grants, notably from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) and the National Endowment for the Arts, from which she received both a Visual Artists Fellowship in Photography and a Design Arts Fellowship. She has also been recognized for her publication design, web design, and poster design projects.
Ghory-Goodman has lectured and published on topics ranging from photographic history to the role of design in social change. She has lectured at national and international venues and exhibited her work widely, most recently in Beijing, Lima, and Havana.
“We are very fortunate to have a colleague of Anne’s stature on our faculty,” says R. Roger Remington, the Vignelli Distinguished Professor of Design in CIAS. “I have known Anne for many years and she is indeed a most experienced teacher and design professional, a major figure in the world of graphic design education.”
At RIT, Ghory-Goodman has served as adjunct professor in the Visual Communication Design Graduate Program and is supporting programming in the Vignelli Center for Design Studies. She will speak about “Meaningful Work” for the Design Conversations lecture series at 4 pm in the University Gallery on November 18.
