During my time with SNAAP, it has been incredibly rewarding to help participating institutions better understand the experiences of their alumni and make improvements for the future. Although it can be challenging to collect and interpret alumni data, my close work with the first decade of SNAAP data reinforces the need for alumni to tell their stories about the impact of arts education, and for us to appreciate their pathways to success.”
