Research and education are central to our mission. As academic disciplines and pedagogies continue to evolve, the IAS serves as a laboratory, fostering and encouraging faculty and students to embrace new ways of thinking to prepare themselves to meet the broad challenges of the rapidly changing social and political landscape.

Classes from all disciplines at UC Santa Cruz and other colleges are welcome for self-guided or staff-led tours. For class tours or visits, please contact Tam Welch, Advanced notice is appreciated.

We develop learning resources, including study guides, artist interviews, and audio tours, for many of our exhibitions.

In addition to our exhibitions, we facilitate research and teaching by developing symposia, hosting an annual dissertation workshop, running our undergraduate certificate, authoring catalogues and more.
