Ricardo Navarro, Academic Director of Design at Miami International University of Art & Design, was recently appointed to the Accreditation Commission of the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA). The Commission, which is comprised of seven members, follows established practices and protocols for making decisions on accreditation of interior design programs.

“CIDA is the one and only accrediting body for interior design programs in the United States and Canada,” says Navarro, who brings more than 14 years of experience to the prestigious position. Navarro holds a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Architecture from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University. He was hired in 2007 to head up the Interior Design department at Miami International University of Art & Design.

According to his appointment letter, Navarro was chosen in a unanimous vote based on his credentials and contributions to higher education. Erika Fleming, President of Miami International University of Art & Design, echoed those sentiments. “We are so proud that Ricardo Navarro has been recognized by CIDA as having a high level of expertise in the interior design field.
