This website is the continuously evolving effort of many people from many disciplines within the Yale School of Art and its wider circles. It is a wiki, meaning that every graduate student, staff person, and faculty member of the School can change this website’s content or add to it at any time. (Logins for other friends, alums, and members of the school are coming soon.)
When you click “Edit this page” on any page, you’ll be prompted to log in using your Yale ID. Then you can proceed to make changes or additions to that page, which everyone else will see.
For practical reasons, not everyone in or associated with the School has access to edit every part of every page. For example, while students may offer their views on a course’s page, or add information or resources, they cannot create official course descriptions. (At the moment, locked areas and content types are the exception rather than the rule.)
That said, we, as a collaborative community, are confident that the information on this website is as reliable as that on any website and more open to diverse voices and perspectives than most. In order that it remains so the site’s interactivity is to be used freely but widely. As you move through it you may, in consequence of such openness, encounter content that surprises you or with which you don’t agree. That will be the sign that this website reflects life in our institution in all its heterogeneous dimensions.

More about this site
The graphic templates and inner workings of this site were designed and programmed by Tamara Maletic and Dan Michaelson of the graphic design partnership Linked by Air, together with Takashi Okamoto of MudCorp. Dan is on the faculty here.
The site is unusual for being a module-based wiki. Authors choose a module appropriate to the content they’re contributing, such as a calendar, an image gallery, a list, an official course description, or general text. Each module then applies intelligence to gather and format its content in a colorful and systemic way. Authors combine several modules in sequence to form a complete page.
The site is programmed using Ruby on Rails.
