- About SCAD
All courses at SCAD are taught by professors with exceptional credentials and valuable professional experience to provide each student with a comprehensive education and career preparation. The SCAD faculty of more than 700 professors is drawn from throughout the world. While many continue to publish, exhibit, design and consult, they are dedicated to teaching and sharing their expertise and professional connections with SCAD students and alumni. With an annual retention rate of 96 percent, the SCAD faculty is deeply committed to the mission and values of SCAD.
SCAD faculty members encourage students to refine their work, to enter competitions, and to perform, screen, exhibit and publish through university organizations, events, galleries and partnerships. Student work gains exposure through student media, industry partnerships, signature events, galleries and SCAD publications, and is often shown to visiting artists, critics, curators and industry professionals.
