Together we aim to shape
the future of design education.

As educators, your impact on the next generation of visual communication students is unparalleled. We invite you to join in our rally cry to affect change by providing formal and informal educator-focused sessions for you to discuss the issues challenging your design programs with colleagues from across the nation. Together we hope to shape the future of design education.

Join The Conversation Online

We are hoping to grow our educator-focused programming but we need your input to do so. Join our Facebook group to interact directly with the NSSC committee, submit ideas of improvement and create a support community to help you address your design program-related needs.

Social Hour

We're keeping things fast and loose with this one. Come join us for a happy hour introduction, meet the committee behind this year's events and mingle with other educators in a mixer-style event, all while enjoying a sip of your favorite cocktail, on us.


This breakout session is a chance to gain inspiration by hearing from one of your own speak on a topic relevant to design educators. Last year was our inaugural year for this and we know you loved it so we're keeping it.

If you would like to be this year's featured speaker please submit your session ideas
