FEATURED STORY
FIT's Sustainability Conference Draws Record Crowds   
On April 3 and 4, nearly 1,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the college attended FIT’s 13th Annual Sustainable Business and Design Conference, which convened thought leaders across the creative industries for lectures and panel discussions about recent and future breakthroughs for preserving our planet. This year’s theme was Innovation in Sustainability, and programming focused on cutting-edge research and technology for reducing our environmental impact and taking steps toward healing the earth. For the first time, the FIT Foundation’s Annual Awards Gala was integrated into the conference; it took place April 3 at the American Museum of Natural History. Again and again, conference presenters stressed that our chance to halt global warming and environmental destruction is running out. Read more about the conference here.
