Interface Supports Quality Assurance for Interior Design Education

Interface recently hosted the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) Board of Directors’ fall business meeting at its headquarters in LaGrange, GA. Interface has a long history of leadership in the design community and a world-renowned legacy for revolutionizing industrial processes to ensure the wellbeing of the planet for future generations. Company representatives met with the CIDA Board to discuss how social responsibility and environmental stewardship are accomplished alongside product innovation and design excellence. Interface’s outstanding contribution of knowledge and sponsorship helps advance CIDA’s mission to provide the foundation for future excellence in the interior design profession by setting standards for higher education and accrediting programs that meet those standards.

“At Interface, we feel a responsibility to the world and to the industry that is larger than the products we sell,” says Jennifer Busch, Vice President of A&D Market Development. “We are proud to support CIDA in its efforts to raise the standards of interior design education, and therefore raise the entire profession.”

The Council for Interior Design Accreditation is an independent, non-profit, accrediting organization responsible for setting standards and evaluating degree granting interior design programs. There are 180 CIDA-accredited programs in the U.S., Canada, and Qatar. For more information about the Board of Directors, go to accredit-id.org.
