Alyson Giantisco - Graduate Programs Coordinator
Alyson (BFA Fashion Design ’02) is an artist and professional with an expansive nonprofit arts administration background. Her current role as the Graduate Programs Coordinator weaves together her artistic and administrative strengths to support Graduate Studies in Admissions, grant-writing, event-planning, and more. Alyson was formerly the Operations Manager at preK-12 arts education nonprofit ArtWell and spent more than eight years at The University of the Arts as part of the Admissions team, including as an Interim Director. While at Moore as an undergrad, she was offered a job before graduation by a critic at the Senior Fashion Show, and spent time in design before deciding that her personal mission more closely dovetailed with nonprofit art education, which she has supported ever since.
