Lisa Bynoe is on leave for the Fall 2021 semester.

...My favorite author is Maya Angelou. When I read, "I know Why the Caged Bird Sings," her descriptive language amazed and inspired me. I love to read and enjoy spending time with my family in Roslindale – a husband and two adult daughters. I studied art history at Howard University, graphic design at Boston University and technology in education at Harvard University. I love school too! I taught high school visual art for 12 years in a suburb west of Boston. Most of my work career has been arts related in some form at such places as MassArt, Northeastern, United Way of Mass Bay and the MBTA. In 1989, I created my claim to fame - the MBTA green line sign on the trolleys - and it is still seen everyday by millions...even today! If you happen to see it, let me know!

In my position of Associate Director of Graduate Programs at SMFA at Tufts, a large part of my role is working with the MFA graduate students and advising them on class schedules and navigating their experience at Tufts. Also, I attend assorted SMFA committees representing the grad program’s perspective and facilitating events that enhance the student experience.
