Today, another in our occasional series, Midday on Higher Education, in which we sit down with the presidents of colleges and universities throughout the state.
Among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas, greater Baltimore is the fourth most-educated region in America. Seventeen percent of area residents hold advanced or professional degrees. That’s substantially higher than the national average.
Tom’s guest today is Samuel Hoi, the president of the Maryland Institute College of Art, the oldest continuously degree-granting college of art in the United States.
Mr. Hoi took the reins at MICA in 2014. One of the country’s leading art schools, MICA teaches art and entrepreneurship. And as one of Baltimore’s anchor institutions, it has a unique capacity to contribute to our city’s creative economy.
