Morocco Initiative

RISD Global initiates and develops global partnerships that enable new kinds of education opportunities and expand avenues for research and teaching.

Partnerships create exciting possibilities. We collaborate with academic and non-academic partners to create multi-year initiatives around topics of mutual interest. Together we craft opportunities for research, learning, and engagement that take varied forms, from off-campus teaching to research, faculty exchange, co-taught courses, symposia, and exhibitions.

Recent partnerships have focused on such topics as material research and traditions of making. Through these kinds of partnered efforts, we elevate discourse, educate our communities, and create platforms for meaningful dialogue and creative exchange.
