Visiting Delegations

Each year, RISD hosts numerous visitors and visiting delegations representing universities and art & design schools across the globe, as well as those representing embassies and consulates, non-profit agencies, arts spaces around the world.

Each visit is an opportunity for the RISD faculty to expand our network, our knowledge and awareness of practices across the globe, and to share insights on best and current practices in art, design and architecture education and pedagogies.

Though our capacity to host visitors is limited, we do strive to support those that share our mission, vision, values, and commitment to art and design education today.
