AIB faculty member Robert Jay Kaufman passed away on January 8, 2010 following a difficult battle with cancer. Robert was a much loved member of our AIB community. He contributed greatly to our academic and creative strength, our growth during the 1990s and 2000s, and, in particular, to the growth and development of the Illustration and Animation Departments. In fact, it is because of his leadership and vision that we have an Animation program at AIB. He so typified the dedication that our faculty and staff have to our students, always given generously of his time and knowledge. This past December, Robert was awarded the Lesley University Impact Award, one of just four people to receive the award this year.
