The Graphic Design program at COD is affiliated with organizations that will help you succeed as a student and designer. Be sure to check out the benefits that these organizations have to offer.
We have the privilege to be one of 27 schools involved with the Adobe Partners by Design program. Adobe Partners by Design is an international program for select schools that brings faculty, students, and the design community together to help tomorrow's designers fully develop their skills. College of DuPage was selected for membership in Adobe Partners by Design because it is committed to providing students and faculty with the tools they need to succeed. Through this partnership, Adobe offers benefits, including on-campus training using state-of-the art software, free seat licenses for almost all Adobe software products, and the opportunity to participate in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

AIGA, the professional association for design, is committed to advancing design as a professional craft, strategic tool and vital cultural force. AIGA believes designers serve a critical role as communicators, educators and innovators. AIGA sets the national agenda for the role of design in economic, social, political, cultural and creative contexts.
