Prattfolio Spring/Summer 2010 "Global Perspectives Issue"
Pratt has long been recognized globally for the excellence of its educational programs. Today, with more than 30,000 alumni worldwide, students from more than 60 countries, and a number of activities that address some of the most pressing global issues, Pratt has become a major international player in such diverse areas as healthcare, shipping, fashion, and filmmaking. From helping produce an HIV/AIDS testing device for use in remote parts of Sub-Saharan Africa to drawing on South Asian design motifs to create novel textiles, Pratt community members are influencing, and being influenced by, the world beyond our campus, our city, and our country. Pratt alumni around the world also play an important role in helping Pratt remain on the cutting edge of developments in the many disciplines and professional fields represented in our academic programs. In addition, Pratt alumni help to strengthen the growing Pratt network that has helped open doors for so many of our students and graduates.
