Leah Hoffmitz Milken has been nominated by the ArtCenter community for the title of Faculty Emerita. This posthumous title is conferred in honor of Leah’s many years of great service and influence upon the ArtCenter students, faculty and staff. It is one of the first such titles conferred by ArtCenter.
As one faculty member wrote: “Leah has had a profoundly positive impact on ArtCenter’s Graphic Design program, on our colleagues, and on generations upon generation of our students. As an iconic typography instructor, Leah has successfully taught in our program for over 20 years and her legacy lives on in our classrooms and especially in the now open Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography. Granting her the title of Emerita will set a very positive sign to the ArtCenter community and to the world of graphic design at large…”
