We recently asked Stephanie to describe her experiences as a faculty member in MICA's Animation Department. You can read her answers below, and check out a gallery of her artwork.


Tell us about being a faculty member in MICA's Animation Department. What do you love about the environment there?

“I am constantly in awe of the talent and energies of my colleagues as they support our students and one another. I feel like I am a part of a team that is constantly working so hard to build something great. I feel so much gratitude to be a part of a community that I can fully contribute towards.”

What about the students you teach? What impresses you about them?

I have learned so much from my students as I help them understand the importance of their own voice. I know that these students will never feel ‘stuck’ in their research when they leave MICA because they have shown through countless obstacles that they aren’t satisfied with the way things are, they strive to invent strategies for the way things should be. That drive isn’t something that you see very often within so many individual students.
