Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Mark Van Den Hende, said “We are extremely pleased to forge this agreement with Savannah College of Art and Design.” Executive Director of eLearning and Transfer Enrollment, Margaret Kross, and Bermuda College’s Art instructors, Michael Walsh and Dr. Edwin Smith, were given particular credit for having worked diligently over the last six months to link the two colleges.
