SCAD graphic design students working together in classroom

Industry partnerships

Sponsored projects

Every year, the SCAD Collaborative Learning Center, or CLC, generates more than 50 discrete industry-sponsored projects across 40 disciplines, pairing innovative companies with the brightest creative students and professors.

SCAD students are the designers, thinkers and influences of tomorrow. We integrate multiple disciplines, offering partners innovative concepts and solutions. We research, develop and deliver polished and professional results all within an academic setting.

Program structure

Projects are scheduled during 10-week quarters, according to the SCAD academic calendar, and are developed at least one quarter in advance. Partners will participate by meeting with their SCAD team at least three times to deliver the design brief, conduct a midpoint review and attend a final presentation of concepts and deliverables..
