The program consists of two, intensive 10-day on-campus residencies during summer and winter sessions over the course of 2.5 years. During the fall and spring semesters, students work in their home studios and continue relationships with faculty mentors and fellow colleagues via email exchange, online seminars, blog contributions and other social media.

Visiting Faculty are invited to develop residency courses around themes integral to their concerns and expertise as artists and thinkers. Recent examples include: Art Like/Unlike Life; Context and Audience; Image and Text; In The Making; The Ineffable, The Unthinkable, The Unrepresentable; The Mobile Museum; On the Subject of Community; and, Ruins in Reverse.
