CIDA Launches Standards Development with Community Survey

The Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) is beginning to develop educational quality standards for interior design graduates entering the field in 2017 and beyond.

Surveys are being used to gain input from all who share a stake in the future of the interior design profession. The first survey involves defining and prioritizing a broad scope of trends impacting interior design practice. CIDA wants to hear from:

Interior designers
Employers of interior design graduates
Interior design educators
Interior design students
Related disciplines and industry professionals

If you share a stake in the future of interior design, help raise the bar for interior design higher education and have your voice heard. Take the survey and express your views today.

The survey deadline is March 28. Please feel free to distribute this notice to others who may be interested in participating.

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. The full summary of trends and more information about the CIDA standards development project is available at: Professional Standards.
