NEW: Maeda Resigns From RISD

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

 

John Maeda, president of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), announced today that he will be stepping down from his position at the end of the current semester.

In a video message (posted below) sent to the RISD community, President Maeda announced that he has accepted a position in Silicon Valley. In January 2014, he will assume the position of Design Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, where he will help KPCB’s entrepreneurs build design into their company cultures; he will also chair the eBay Design Advisory Board, working with the company to evolve design capabilities.

“The courage, inspiration and rigor that RISD students show in their work and their choices to lead – why we say that RISD is the Reason I’m Sleep Deprived – is what inspired me to seize these opportunities,” Maeda notes in the video. “I am passionate about revealing art and design’s role in innovation, and this next step represented irresistible pathways to strengthen design’s place in the digital age. At the same time, I feel privileged to have led this amazing community, and I know that I leave RISD as the best art and design school in the world and with every opportunity that it will be even better in the years to come.”

“President Maeda has been a visionary and passionate leader for RISD over the past six years, advancing not only our cherished, 136 year old institution but also the role of art and design in the 21st century global economy," noted Michael Spalter, chair of the RISD Board of Trustees. “I congratulate President Maeda on his new opportunities and I am delighted that he will continue to be an advocate for creativity and a leader at the intersection of design, technology, and business. RISD’s Board of Trustees will take the appropriate next steps to ensure a smooth and orderly transition, working closely with our extraordinary, seasoned and talented leadership team – Provost Rosanne Somerson and Chief Operating Officer Jean Eddy. “

During Maeda’s tenure, RISD was ranked the #1 Design School in the World in Business Insider’s 2012 survey. Applications increased by 9.4% in 2012 and are up another 3.5% in 2013.

“Maeda was transformative in allowing the Providence business community to look at the city and our assets through a different lens, and see the great potential that is here at the nexus of advanced manufacturing, design and creativity," notes Laurie White, president of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. "Losing John is a great loss to the Providence community, but we look forward to continued partnership with RISD on efforts to grow Rhode Island's creative economy."
