Office of Partnerships

Mission

To engage employers and external partners in CCS’s programs and community through meaningful projects and initiatives in order to prepare all students for successful and sustainable creative practice and support CCS strategic initiatives.

Vision

All CCS students, especially those historically underrepresented in the field of art and design, are able to sustainably practice their chosen discipline post-graduation in a thriving art and design community.

Business, community, governmental and philanthropic leaders in a wide variety of fields see CCS as an indispensable resource to their success because of the value delivered through the experiential learning and career development-focused curriculum and the access to a diverse pool of talent.
