Timeline: a work in progress

We recognize that institutional memory–the knowledge that emerges out of an awareness of our own history–can easily slip away if not properly cultivated. In that spirt, this database contains artifacts and events from our past, which corresponds to a departmental initiative to record our story.

Have something to add? Photographs, event dates, stories, or any kind of submission, correction, or feedback can be sent to archweb@risd.edu
