The NewSchool of Architecture & Design (NSAD) in San Diego has a new president. Gregory J. Marick is a career educator and former president of the Orange County and Hollywood divisions of the Art Institute of California (AIC).
“This is an exciting time for NewSchool of Architecture & Design. We’re creating a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment that provides opportunities for students to specialize not only in architecture, but in other related design fields such as game programming and interior design,” Marick told AN.
At the AIC in Hollywood, Marick oversaw improvements to academics, student life, and facilities that helped earn the school re-accreditation. Later in Orange County, he boosted enrollment, improved student retention, and established a formal partnership with a college in Beijing.
NSAD, which currently offers programs in architecture, construction management, digital media arts, and interior design, is adding courses in product design, animation, game art, and game programming.
“Design has the power to transform our lives, and I am thrilled to be joining NSAD now as we develop even more opportunities for students to succeed anywhere in the world,” Marick said.
