ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, Interior Design Program

Top national and international students are attracted to the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture’s Interior Design Program, which is concerned with the future of the design professions and the accompanying issues of sustainability, social responsibility in practice and production, and collaboration in the professional world. The combined effort of the faculty of the school provides a basis for continued collaboration and design leadership. The involvement of the Interior Design students in the CHAIRity event is an opportunity to apply this imperative and affect positive change in the community. In addition, the students’ positive experience in this effort and its life lessons go far beyond their expectations for learning. For more information, visit
