Established more than 40 years ago, Florence Off-Campus Studies is a unique study-abroad program. Help revitalize it by supporting additional teaching aids, attracting renowned guest critics and visiting lecturers, and upgrading facilities and equipment.
What started as a small art college is now an urban university POWERHOUSE of creative thinking and production, integrating art, design, digital and indigenous knowledge with 16 undergraduate and six graduate degree programs, a business incubator and 19 research labs.
Together, we will build on this unique, studio-based educational model. Your support will fund EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING and enriched academic programs, which not only respond to local needs across multiple sectors, but also addresses GLOBAL CHALLENGES such as climate change, wellness, cultural diversity and globalization. This expanded programming will allow us to take more students OUT OF THE CLASSROOM and into communities, on cultural or commercial work placements, and overseas for international study, research and exchange.
Support our one-year experiential learning business incubator program, and help to provide our resident entrepreneurs resources such as maker studios, labs, prototyping equipment, advisory services, co-working space, and business skills development sessions.
This new giving opportunity for alumni, students and parents enables you to make a donation that supports the academic program of your choice. Donations will go directly to the selected department, to help support key program initiatives and faculty needs.
