Among the faculty designers showcasing their expertise and interest within the field of fashion are Jeffrey Mayer, fashion design program coordinator; Karen Bakke; Todd Conover; Laurel Morton; Claudia Gervais; Joyce Backus; Elizabeth Shorrock; Megan Lawson Clark; and Jean Henry.

This, coupled with practical and theoretical skills, technology and the study of the cultural context in which fashion exists, provides a broad-based education in fashion.
