World-class faculty are the keystone of CIA's Cores + Connections.
With a faculty to student ratio of 9:1, students at CIA are mentored by faculty members who are accomplished professionals in their fields, and who, in turn, share their knowledge, craft and professional experience on a daily basis. In their own practices, CIA's studio faculty are engaged in regional, national, and/or international arenas, with projects ranging from a local effort to build designers’ work stations out of wood reclaimed from abandoned houses, to producing independent films that travel to film festivals worldwide. Students also richly benefit from the global perspective of CIA's accomplished Liberal Arts faculty, comprised of art historians, writers, researchers, and other scholars of the humanities.
