On Friday, June 19, WWD ran a front-page piece on FIT in its Digital Daily, featuring an in-depth interview with President Joyce F. Brown. Dr. Brown, who became FIT’s sixth president in 1998, discussed FIT’s future, its strategic plan, and its goals as the school celebrates its 70th anniversary and looks toward its 75th.
