For Alana Coates, who's built a career at galleries and museums of all kinds, the role of a gallery at an art college is especially pivotal.

"The enhanced hands-on learning opportunities that a gallery provides as a platform of creative exploration is crucial for students to transition to successful creative careers outside of school," Coates says.

Coates, whose tenure at PCA&D began at the start of this academic year, comes to the College after filling a wide spectrum of roles in museums as well as commercial and academic galleries. The opportunity to help create, shape, and refine opportunities for students here, she says, was irresistible. She's drawn to the chance to spotlight creative perspectives that challenge, educate, and inspire students in their own work.

Todd Snovel last week was honored as the Business Diversity Champion at the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC's 2019 Catalyst Awards.

He was thrilled to accept the award, he says -- but not on his own behalf.

The award, Snovel says, "is on behalf of those brave Pennsylvanians who live in fear of losing jobs or housing, who are still facing the fear of those realities daily" in a state which offers no legal protections from discrimination to LGBTQ Pennsylvanians.

Snovel, Special Assistant to the President for Strategic Initiatives, joined the College in November, and has spent his career advocating for diversity and inclusion. The former Assistant Dean for Engagement and Inclusion at Lebanon Valley College, he most recently had been appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to establish the nation’s first statewide Commission for LGBTQ Affairs.
