Learning Safely Together

Nothing was more important to RISD students last academic year than returning to campus and the hands-on educational experience only possible when working together in studios and classrooms.

Thanks to an extraordinary outpouring of support, RISD brought students back to campus safely and held an in-person commencement. Continued investment in community safety will be a top priority again this year.
