Tony-Winning Designer Clint Ramos to Lead Fordham's Design and Production Major
Decorated designer Clint Ramos, currently represented on Broadway by Once On This Island and Torch Song, has just joined the staff at Fordham University heading up their Design and Production track.
Ramos recently taught a theatre history course at the university and will return in the spring to teach costume and set design courses and run workshops. When asked about his teaching philosophy, Ramos replied, "I don't really try to think of teaching as 'I want to create these theater artists.' For me, I really just want them to come out of the program as really good citizens with a solid identity. That's above anything else."
