RISD Alumni Labs

Explore Together

Reconnect with the creative magic of RISD as you join like-minded peers on a journey of learning and experimentation.

Learning doesn’t end after graduation! Professional development and personal enrichment opportunities that connect you with the creative magic of RISD are only one click away. Alumni Labs is working to bring together the largest interconnected hub of RISD alumni around topics and goals that are important and relevant to your personal and professional growth. Alumni Labs is a space for continuous learning driven by peer support, expert advice, and a rekindling of curiosity and creative practice.

Just as society changes, so do your personal needs, goals, and priorities. What mattered to you as a student has evolved as your life has taken various turns and encountered new lessons outside of RISD’s walls. Through a mix of personal enrichment and professional development, offered online, in person, and regionally, Alumni Labs will serve as your continuous road home to your creative community.

Alumni Labs will launch with a pilot set of course offerings. During the initial pilot period, a variety of content, formats, lengths, and interests will be explored. Courses within Alumni Labs will leverage your unique and strong alumni community to give you the opportunity to learn and make while networking with your peers.
