The Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at ArtCenter College of Design

Our commitment to a diverse, equitable and inclusive learning environment is fundamental to our values and our curriculum.

Graduate Industrial Design Student, Brandon Comer speaking at the Fall 2019 ArtCenter Military & Veteran Luncheon

The student from the suburbs, the student from Peru, the student from poverty and the student from wealth—all have much to bring and should be equally valued. The diversity of authentic contribution and exploration of personal vision is at the heart of a shared creative community.
