Faculty

Learn from an outstanding group of talented industry pros

The single most important factor in any educational institution is its faculty. An outstanding faculty defines a college. FIDM Instructors are unmatched in their expertise and their commitment to educating a new generation of professionals. In selecting the best possible faculty, we consider academic excellence and practical experience, so our students get the benefit of both. Many of our instructors maintain dual careers: as FIDM Instructors and as active specialists in their fields. They bring their daily exposure to these industries back into FIDM's classrooms, studios, and labs for the benefit of our students.

Outstanding Faculty Award

The Outstanding Faculty Award was established in 1984 to honor FIDM Instructors for their commitment to excellence and their dedication to student learning and success. Each year the graduating class votes within their major to select the Outstanding Faculty member. The winners receive a crystal apple award at the annual Graduation ceremonies held in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

FIDM Hall of Fame

FIDM Hall of Fame is composed of instructors who have received an Outstanding Faculty Award in their department three times. These winners are inducted into FIDM’s Hall of Fame and are recognized at the annual Graduation ceremonies in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
