A Statement of Support for All

Jan. 31, 2017

The Cleveland Institute of Art welcomes and supports students, faculty and staff from all nations, faith traditions and backgrounds.  

Although the college does not currently have students or staff affected by the federal government’s newly announced travel ban, CIA intends to continue its tradition of openness toward people of all cultures.

Within the world of art and design and beyond, our times call on us to pay more heed, not less, to the United States’ long tradition of welcoming others to our shores. It is the right thing to do for our neighbors, and it enriches our own culture. 

Grafton J. Nunes
