Student Organizations for Interior Design
The Interior Design Alliance (IDA) is a student led organization comprised of Interior
Design majors with two faculty sponsors. IDA serves as an umbrella organization for
student chapters of The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and The Construction
Specifications Institute (CSI) with a central focus on learning opportunities, community
engagement, and networking within the context of interior design. Students are involved
in activities that bridge the gap between the school environment and the professional
world by promoting further knowledge and understanding of the Interior Design profession
including speakers, field-trips, and other events. The organization provides opportunities
to network with professionals and other interior design students, get involved in
the design community and leadership roles, attend seminars and conferences, enter
competitions and receive scholarships, and a chance to advance the interior design
profession at UTC.
Interior Design Intrigue is the UTC Department of Interior Design’s student recruiting,
public relations, and hospitality team.
