Expanding lifelong learning for RISD alumni
The Alumni Travel Program offers the unique opportunity to study the history and cultural diversity of locales around the world with other creative and intellectually curious alumni. Don’t worry about logistics, we’ve got it covered. Experience art and design in a different culture, make new friends, discover local cuisines and be inspired on each spectacular journey. Every trip is led by local experts who share their knowledge to further enrich the travelers’ experience and offer exclusive behind the scenes investigations. Some trips are shared with other leading institutions.
Indulge in glorious views of cobalt lakes, mountains and opulent villas while cruising on Italy's spectacular lakes.
