Alfred University

Since 1836, Alfred University (initially as the Alfred Select School) has been a visionary leader in higher education offering the first truly co-educational curriculum in the country and opening its doors to students of diverse backgrounds.
Since1900, through an act of the New York State Legislature, the New York State College of Ceramics was established as a statutory unit of Alfred University.
As a result, two schools of international reputation have grown, the Inamori School of Engineering and the School of Art and Design.
Today, the School of Art and Design continues in the innovative and visionary tradition of its past to offer a true multi-disciplinary environment for creative and scholarly research in art.
