In the Press: David Rhodes in ‘Crain’s New York Business’

April 4, 2012

SVA President David Rhodes was cited in a recent article by Crain’s New York Business about a new study by the Center for an Urban Future. The report, entitled Designing New York’s Future, names SVA among the top four New York design schools responsible for driving innovation, entrepreneurship and economic growth in the city. The Crain’s article points out that although many design school students are not from New York, most stay after graduation to start their careers. “More than half of our student body is from other states, and 30% of the students in our graduate program are from other countries,” said Rhodes. “It’s a significant boon to the economy of New York.”
