Upon re ceiving formal notification from CIDA, Head of the School of Interior Design, Dave Harrison, commented, “A ccreditation is an out ward, visible symbol of an inner, invisible commitment. The BAC va lue s our a ccreditors’ standards bec ause, for our students to be well prepa red to deal with turbulent economic times, we must offer them the most professiona l interior design education we c an provide. We very much appreciate CIDA’s rec ognition of our faculty’s, students’ a nd employers’ adherence to high standards of teaching and learning, in the classroom, and in Practice.” “Creative interior design is a primary sou rce for bettering public he alth, improving cl a ssroom learning, providing aids for the a ging, creating greater workplace efficiency, and making more delightful public places,” st ated President Ted Landsmark. “ The BAC’s Interior Design programs are preparing client-sensitive designers for c areers that will create the spaces we will inhabit for years to come.

DI states in its annual America’s Best Architecture and Design School Ranking 2010, “Some of these unranked programs are doing incredible things, pushing the boundaries of education innovation, par tnering with private firms in enterprising new ways and developing the next gener- ation of design thought leaders.” We feel that this is a perfect description of the work of our School of Interior Design . The BAC’s Bachelor of Architecture remains in the top twenty ranked programs, at number seventeen. The annual rankings are compiled from surveys conducted and analyzed by The Greenway Group. www.di.net bac INTERIoR dEsIgN pRogRams REcogNIZEd by deSignintelligenCe Interior design programs receive six-year Reaccreditation from the council for Interior design accreditation commission (cIda) fEaTuRE ] pREpaRE foR a chaNgINg WoRld student work, cIda accreditation exhibition 22 pRacTIcE
