About Sessions College

Academic Team

At Sessions College, our mission is preparing art and design professionals. To help us achieve our mission, it takes a village. We recruit a Faculty of industry leading artists and designers. Our Academic team of seasoned educators and instructional designers work with our faculty to design, develop, and update course content. Our Department Heads provide annual program reviews, and outcomes assessment, and mentoring. An Advisory Board of design industry veterans provide workplace assessment and program review feedback.
