Onstead Institute

The Onstead Institute develops, supports, and sustains innovative art and design practices and processes for K-12 education through a program of research, project administration, and public dissemination of information.

By partnering with faculty and students within the College of Visual Arts & Design (CVAD), the Institute contributes to the culture of creative excellence that has made the college a premier destination for emerging and established artists, designers, educators, and scholars. The Institute also seeks to integrate CVAD’s creative and intellectual energies with those of the external community—locally, nationally, and abroad—through engagement and collaboration.
