One reason the Institute of Art & Design at Robert Morris University is so exciting is the numerous opportunities to display work. Students from all Art & Design programs have the opportunity to show off their talents in various disciplines from the very beginning of their education. The Institute of Art & Design programs emphasize the experiential nature of design through project-based learning and through internship experiences with cultural institutions and businesses. The ability to communicate complex ideas in a variety of formats and mediums is a vital and necessary skill for a successful career. These skills are developed as students compile a portfolio.

As Dean, I know our faculty bring passion and experience to their work because they teach some of RMU’s most dedicated and directed students. Our philosophy in the Institute of Art & Design is simple: Bring the highest quality faculty together with students who are eager and motivated to learn, and amazing things can happen.

As our institute continues to build on its high–quality programs, I look forward to seeing more students create the kinds of relationships with our faculty that make college such a memorable experience. RMU has been successful in helping students reach their goals both professionally and personally, and I know we can help you do the same. Respectfully yours,

Janice Kaushal Dean of the Institute of Art & Design
