Grad community events and webinars

Throughout the year both in-person and virtual events bring graduate students together and connect them to RISD’s wide variety of resources. Exhibition openings, artist talks and social events are complemented by sessions focused on essential academic services, career guidance and other forms of support to help ensure student success at RISD and after graduation.

Students may find events of interest on our events calendar, including Graduate Studies-sponsored events. We also offer prospective students several opportunities to connect with RISD, including on-campus and online information sessions throughout the fall.

If you have questions about upcoming events, please email gradstudies@risd.edu.

Note: You will need to sign into Zoom using your RISD credentials to access most live Zoom events.
