What sets the Cleveland Institute of Art apart from other colleges of art and design? In a nutshell, our Cores + Connections make all the difference.
The word "core" comes from the Latin "cor" or “heart.” At the heart of CIA is an energetic culture of faculty mentorship, studio and academic rigor, a cross-disciplinary curriculum, and community engagement.
With a faculty to student ratio of 8:1, 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 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.
Also at the heart of CIA's culture is a commitment to studio practice and academic rigor driven by our accomplished professional faculty. Our core curriculum – a nested set of interrelated areas of scholarly study – will help you develop your work… and your world view. “The Role of the Artist as Producer” is just one unique example that students cite.
CIA is also on the cutting edge with virtual connectivity. This starts with iPad support in your first year – integrated into your Liberal Arts and Foundation Studio classes – and will soon include a distance learning initiative that will connect learners from communities around the world.
The classroom definitely extends beyond the campus. Community-based exchanges of knowledge, resources, and skills begin in your very first semester of Foundation Studio classes, and continue not only through senior year, but beyond graduation. On any given day, CIA students may be observing and illustrating surgery at University Hospitals, sketching in the Glasshouse at Cleveland Botanical Garden, researching diorama design at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, or studying abroad.
We’ve had students consulting for the world-class Cleveland Museum of Art, illustrating the first near-total-face transplant at the Cleveland Clinic, collaborating with engineering students at Case Western Reserve University's think[box] innovation center, designing cars in Detroit, touring behind-the-scenes workings of New York galleries, and building an offsite wood-burning kiln. All before graduation.
At last count, we listed well over 100 known community partnerships!
CIA’s Cores + Connections help build the skills and confidence students say they need in order to seize new opportunities that develop in their daily lives. CIA is committed to helping students connect their considerable art + design knowledge with on-the-ground skills in partnering with others to solve real-world problems – and in so doing, mutually engaging in the communities in which we all live, learn, work, and grow.
So, "Cores + Connections" is CIA's name for the living, evolving network of working partnerships among the students, faculty, curriculum, instructional methods, staff, alumni, and the local, national, and global communities in which they each participate.
