Host an event!

The Academy hosts at least one annual Alumni reception each year, but some alumni have also organized Cranbrook get-togethers on other occasions. If you’d like to host an event at a conference, an exhibition, in a particular city or for a special Academy occasion, please let us know by sending an email to We’d be happy to help!


Volunteer to talk with prospective students!

Each fall, we travel to graduate review events organized by the National Portfolio Day Association in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Our Assistant Director is always looking for volunteers who would like to join her in talking with prospective graduate students – no one can explain Cranbrook like alumni. Help us share with students what Cranbrook has to offer for graduate studies! Please contact if you’d like to learn about volunteering and for a schedule of events.


Do you teach in an undergraduate program?

As part of her visits to the National Graduate Portfolio Review events, our Assistant Director also visits undergraduate programs in order to let students know of the Academy as an option for graduate study. If you’d like her to visit your program, please contact us: Or, you can send your students to meet with her at the portfolio review days. For a schedule of the events, please click here.

No time to volunteer?

Don’t forget that you can continue to stay involved and support the Academy by making a donation or by joining ArtMembers at Cranbrook. As a member of ArtMembers, you’ll receive invitations to special events on campus, as well as many other benefits. Please visit our ‘Give Back’ page for more information.

One simple way to stay involved is to stay in touch. Be sure to let us know when you’ve moved or changed email addresses!
