All NSCAD campuses closed February 14 due to storm clean up and transit interruptions.

Update: our campuses will reopen at 4 p.m. and access to buildings and studios will resume.  

Vision and Mission

Informed by the past, engaged by the present, looking to the future and guided by the intention to make positive change, NSCAD University is a beacon to those who seek to know the world as it is and to create what it might be.

NSCAD University is an immersive, rigorous and supportive academic community where members are known and celebrated for their creativity and differences. Through active inquiry we identify, define and approach the complexities of our world, challenge conventional thinking, and create value and economic impact through art, media, craft and design.
