About Education

The AIGA Philadelphia seeks to enhance the abilities of design educators and educational institutions in order to prepare future designers for excellence in design practice. We have created programming throughout the school year to engage, inspire and mentor emerging design students.

We are always looking for committee members. If you have any interest in becoming a committee member please contact our Education Board Chair.
