For Educators


Greetings Design Educators,

The Educators area of the ASID Web site has been designed to help support and facilitate interior design education. I encourage you to review it carefully and investigate all of the resources it has to offer.

This page is organized into three user-friendly categories:  information to use in the classroom; resources for your professional development; and additional ASID educator member benefits.

As the largest organization of professional interior designers in North America, ASID is committed to encouraging and supporting quality interior design education.  Our best wishes to you and your program as you continue to provide the profession with exceptional entry level professionals.  Please utilize the resources provided and let us know if there are additional ways we can support your efforts.
