A place within the community

At each SCAD location, the university contributes to the enhancement of the surrounding community through heritage, cultural and educational programs, such as open discussions with acclaimed authors at the Ivy Hall Writers Series in Atlanta; exhibitions and public tours and workshops in Hong Kong; and performances and films in Savannah. SCAD is committed to restoring and reusing buildings that serve as architectural and historical touchstones for students as well as valuable resources for the local communities.

SCAD students, faculty and staff are involved in local arts groups and other non-profit cultural, civic and religious organizations. SCAD encourages good citizenship and volunteerism, and serves to enrich the cultural landscape at each SCAD location.
