Ontario College of Art & Design Renews Membership in Leonardo Affiliate Membership Program
The Ontario College of Art & Design is Canada's "university of the imagination," engaging in education and research and contributing to the fields of art and design, local and global cultural initiatives, and knowledge and invention across a wide range of disciplines. Since 1876, OCAD's specialized, studio-based programs have inspired students, faculty and alumni to push the boundaries of art and design--analytically, conceptually and strategically. Today, OCAD combines the strength of that tradition with new approaches to learning and research that emphasize collaboration, innovation and the integration of emerging technologies. Students in OCAD's 15 interdisciplinary bachelor's and master's degree programs benefit from a university education that blends academic rigor with the experimental freedom of the studio. Leonardo/ISAST welcomes OCAD as a returning member of the Leonardo Affiliate Membership Program. FIND OUT MORE
