Cores + Connections

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" for “heart.” At the heart of CIA is an energetic culture of world-class faculty mentorship, academic and studio rigor, cutting edge curriculum, and our core values - all in connection to CIA's commitment to building better futures by engaging students in community-based learning, real-world projects, and social practices in art and design. This begins with your very first semester in Foundation studies and continues throughout your education here, and may occur through courses, extracurricular activities, and/or internships. All made by possible by over 200 external partnerships, at last count!
