Academics . Cores + Connections . Real-World Experience 

Real-world, professional experience

CIA’s Cores + Connections help build the skills and confidence students say they need to seize real-world opportunities that develop in their daily lives - now and after graduation. Through courses, extracurricular projects and activities, or internships, students may connect to real-world experiences every school year. Our goal is for all students to experience an increasingly seamless transition from college to their professional lives.

Just a few examples of these real-world experiences include students consulting for the world-class Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland City Hall, illustrating the first near-total-face transplant at the Cleveland Clinic, collaborating with engineering students at Case Western Reserve University's think[box] innovation center, designing orthopedic surgery instruments for a leading medical technology company, participating in professional exhibition venues such as at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), creating urban beautification improvements for the surrounding city, and building an offsite wood-burning kiln.

All before graduation.
