Our graduates mark the successful culmination of their educational journeys with Emily Carr University and step out into the world, bringing fresh thinking and approaches to many organizations locally, nationally and internationally. Each new graduate launches a new chapter in which they’ll apply the knowledge and expertise earned here within their respective careers and disciplines. In recognition of this transition at year’s end, Emily Carr University hosts a special exhibition on campus and announces awards to luminaries who inspire and lead with their examples.

To bring you this article, Emily Carr Communications reached out to Ehren Seeland, Coordinator of Student Recruitment.
Ehren answers questions and shares striking pictures of her travels around the world, as she meets with international students who are interested in studying at Emily Carr University.
ECC: What is your most memorable international recruiting experience?
Ehren: The best moments revolve around connecting face-to-face with prospective students, counselors, parents, Emily Carr alumni, embassy staff and recruiters across the globe. With relationship building, in-person meetings are crucial and I have been both inspired and humbled with how generously people have welcomed us into their respective pockets of the world. Also, that time I ate spicy grasshoppers in Mexico City – tastier than expected. Read more
On Friday, May 2nd, Emily Carr University hosted Vancouver’s most notable philanthropists and creative economy leaders for a spectacular evening celebrating creativity, our greatest natural resource! Our University’s purpose is to transform creativity in art, design and media into an infinite spectrum of possibilities for our culture as well as for our economy. With such an ambitious mandate, the University has numerous contributors to recognize and thank for their ongoing support. To do just that, on May 2nd, we hosted three distinct yet simultaneous cultural events which mingled festivities for: the launch of THE BIG IDEA Capital Campaign for our new campus; the announcement of a milestone gift which kicked off the Campaign; and Emily Carr’s famous annual graduation show Preview Night for The Show at Emily Carr (if you missed it, the online catalogue is a great way to take a virtual tour of many pieces.)
And, the Red Carpet Photos below aren’t to be missed – especially if you’re in them!
