Get Involved with CCAD

The Griffith Faculty Excellence Fund

As president of Columbus College of Art & Design for 16 years, Denny Griffith led CCAD through transformational change.

But Denny’s goal in his steadfast service to CCAD was not to bring attention to himself. He wanted to help others, and he made sure that praise was heaped on others before himself.

"When the light's shining on me," he once said, "I'd rather turn it to shine on other people."

True to this ideal, Denny worked with the CCAD Board of Trustees to establish the Griffith Faculty Excellence Fund as his legacy to support in perpetuity the good work of the faculty at CCAD.

Memorial gifts to the fund honor Denny’s memory and his vision to provide support in hiring and retaining outstanding faculty in every discipline.
