the Institute

Pratt is an institute, an experience, and an idea. What started as a radical experiment to expand access to creative careers is now a community of 5,137 grad and undergrad students working across 48 programs with 1,200 dedicated faculty. 135 years in the making, this is Pratt.

About Us

Together, our faculty and staff have crafted an answer to one of the most common questions we hear: what is Pratt? In short—we provide the creative leaders of tomorrow the knowledge and experience to make a better world.


A lot has changed since 1887, but for us, the core of Pratt remains the same. Grounded on the same campus in Brooklyn and working to expand access to a new creative economy, we honor our past by continuing to create, innovate, and address the challenges of our time with our craft.

Leadership & Governance

With President Frances Bronet at the helm, our goal as a leadership team at Pratt is to create an environment where students can reach their full potential—preparing them to contribute meaningfully and responsibly to society.

Strategic Plan

After deep reflection about our legacy, our changing context, our strengths, and opportunities for further growth and success, we’ve developed a Strategic Plan that reflects not only our vision for the future of Pratt, but the path we’re paving to get there.
