Our students gain valuable research experience through coursework and working individually with faculty in our Undergraduate Creative Activities and Research Experience (UCARE) program.

Our Responsible Design Learning Community is the first to fill at the university and connects students in shared courses, with student and faculty mentors, and in preparing for the future through exclusive academic, social and professional activities and events.

Each of our programs are accredited through their professional accrediting organizations (NAAB, CIDA, LAAB, PAB) in addition to accreditation through the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
